Lenin Jesus's story

Lenin Jesus lives in Estancia Vieja, a place of humble people who earn their livings in agriculture and shop-keeping. The area has also been greatly affected by the Covid 19 pandemic.

Lenin Jesus is a man who doesn't give up when faced with adversity. His wife passed away a short time ago, but still, he is moving forward. He has a small grocery set up in his home where he sells all kinds of staple goods. He sells meats, vegetables, sweets, ice-cream, sodas and other products. In spite of the pandemic and the difficulties he as had, Lenin Jesus is keeping up with his sales. Even if he feels upset, he keeps in mind that only by working and keeping up with the loans will he get ahead.

This loan will be used to stock up his grocery with rice, sugar, cooking oil etc.
