Leonila
Leonila has a table to put her food on, two stoves that she covers with pieces of zinc so that the wind does not blow out the hot flames from the stove, and two large pots that she puts on the stove to make her “vigoron”, a typical dish in the city of Granada.

Even though she does not have a luxurious place, and she only has her simple things, this is how Leonila earns a living. She is a humble inhabitant of Granada. She is originally from Managua, but ever since she was a little girl she was raised in Granada. She is married, and she has adult children who live independently.

When she was 35 she started her business activity of selling fried snacks and soft drinks at her house. Later, with her own effort and daily hard work she was investing in her business until she made it sustainable. This has been her first business where she gets the support of her daughters. She sells her products at a place located outside of her house. This place is very accessible for selling her products, and she has fixed customers. One of her sons works as a taxi driver, and he helps her with the household expenses.

She requested the loan to buy a freezer and supplies like fruit for drinks, vegetables for salads, meat, rice, and bananas, etc. She will buy all of the ingredients to make her snacks and dishes. She wants the freezer in order to offer her customers fresh products.

She is pleased with the business. Maintaining her sales is going well for her. Her goal is to get ahead and to buy a car. She considers herself to be a responsible, honest, and hard-working person with the desire for self-improvement.
