Lelis Magdelena
Lelis, 39, is a humble merchant from the city of Rama. She has lived in Managua for 18 years with her partner and her four children. For four years she has been running her own grocery store, which she began with only a little capital selling ice cream. She sold enough to invest, little by little, in her business, turning it into a grocery store in an effort to earn more profit. She sought out financing to buy more products in order to attend to customer demand. She receives help from her daughter and also has extra income from her partner who works as a taxi driver.

Lelis is requesting a loan to buy staple goods such as rice, sugar and beans, and school supplies such as notebooks, pencils, erasers, rulers, etc. In an effort to expand her business and obtain more income, in the future she would like to turn her grocery store into a general store. Another goal of hers is to set up a food business.
