Leonicia's story

Leonicia is 55, a single mother, and lives with her grandson. Leonicia has been selling tortillas for 11 years, and for few years, has been selling groceries, dairy products, cold cuts, soft drinks, churros (a fried dough treat), and other basic household items. Her business is located in her home, and she gets up quite early every day to serve her customers. She will use the loan to buy groceries, dairy products, cold cuts, staple grains, soft drinks, juices, and bread, as she wishes to stock her business. Her dream is that the children she has in the United States always have work, and be in good health.
