Leana Patricia
Leana, age 36, is originally from Pacagaguina. She is a single mother with two children, ages 12 and 2 respectively. Leana only has a basic education, having finished high school but not continuing on for a college degree. She is a merchant who prepares and sells donuts. Leana learned this trade from her mother, who was in the business of making donuts for 45 years. Gradually over time, Leana learned everything she needed to know about the business. Today she runs her own donut venture that is separate from her mother’s business. She now has a line of products that are sold in the capital of Managua, where she delivers orders once a week.

Leana is requesting a loan to buy raw materials such as corn, lard, sugar, cheese, and firewood for making donuts. With this investment, she will be able to acquire supplies more easily for making and completing donut orders from her customers. Having greater capacity means that she can produce in larger quantities and attract new customers. Her future plans include continuing to improve the quality of her products and opening shops in other cities so that people will know about her delicious corn donuts. Her next goal is to make a few repairs to her donut shop and to her house.
