El Clavel Group's story

Leodegaria is a woman of 48, and is married to Oscar who is a farmer. They have seven children, but now none of them live with them, so they only support the two of them.

Leodegaria sells food and has her business in her home. Sometimes when they pay assistance to low-income families, she goes to sell at the place where they request it. This is how she has been in her business for a year.

She needs to have a varied menu, and intends to buy more supplies for preparing food, such as tomatoes, onion, meat, dishes and other things. This is what she will use her loan for.
