Leonicia is 35 years old. She lives with her husband and her sixteen-year-old son in a house of her own. She is full of enterprising spirit and never admits defeat in the face of hardship. A few years ago, she decided to start a small shop at her house, and has been keeping this small business going for five years, thanks to her great dedication and to all the efforts she made. Leonicia has a lot of customers, whom she values above all else in her business, and for whom she always has a warm smile ready. Her dream is to give her son a better life. She knows her small business is her only source of income, which is why she asks field partner Integral for a loan in order to invest in it. She needs to buy supplies of all kinds to sell, such as rice, broad beans, sugar, milk, coffee, candy, cooking oil, paper, detergent, and other products that are very much in demand. She feels confident that this investment will help her make her dream come true and grant her more economic stability.
