Lester Adalis
Don Lester is a native of San Lorenzo-Teustepe. He is a storekeeper at a small shop, is married, and is the father of two children, ages 7 and 2. He finished high school with the help of his parents, but his economic situation stopped him from being able to continue after that. He started working for his aunt and uncle, since they had a business, and with time he gained experience. Then he decided to become independent, created his own business, and began selling juice and dairy products on the street.

Later, with some savings he had, he increased his sales by investing in basic goods for the store. Then, through his own efforts and the help of his father, he set up a business in his home. He bought a freezer to keep his goods fresh, and display cases to exhibit his merchandise. His wife helped him with the administrative details of his business while he went off on motorcycle to sell to some areas near his community.

His hope is to increase the amount of merchandise he has for his business, with the objective of increasing his sales. He needs the loan for the purchase of goods like milk, cream, cheese, rice, soap, sugar, etc. He thinks the loan will help him because he can move forward with the business by having what the clients ask for the most. His plan for the future is to increase the size of his business. His next goal is to keep working at his business, to earn more, to repay the loan, and to help his family get ahead.
