Lesbia  Justina
Lesbia is 39 years old, and from the village of La Concha, Teustepe. She is the mother of 2 children aged 1 and 13. She went to work in Costa Rica for 6 years and saved the money she earned there to open a convenience store in Nicaragua. That was how she was able to buy her house.
She works in the convenience store that she has owned for 5 years. Her husband is a farmer and helps out by buying some supplies for her store. She is satisfied with the profits that her store is generating at the moment, because they will allow her to expand it in order to satisfy all of her clients’ needs.
Lesbia is requesting this loan to make her business stronger by buying rice, sugar, oil, ham, chicken, cheese, etc. She believes that by buying these types of products, her sales will increase, her client numbers will also increase, and therefore her income will be greater. Her future plan is to buy more land, and her ultimate goal is to renovate a house that she bought with her husband in order to leave it for their children so that they have somewhere to live.
