Lesbia Baleska's story

Lesbia is 30 years old and lives in the southern area of Honduras. Her daughter and her husband live with her, and he supports her in each of her commitments. Her business is the sale of groceries, activity she carries out since four years ago in the community where she lives. Her business is located in a strategic place, because it is in a main street of the community and this makes it very busy.

Lesbia needs the loan to buy: corn, meat, dairy, poultry, soft drinks, sugar, oil, butter, soap, eggs, bread, etc. The expected impact of the credit is an increase of sales, because she will buy a great variety of products, thus meeting the needs of each of her customers.

The future plans for Lesbia are to keep growing her business, as well as to generate good income, and to give a good education to her daughter and a better quality of life.
