Leonor De Jesús's story

Leonor, 49, is a woman who is worthy of admiration and respect. Three years ago her husband had an accident, leaving him incapacitated permanently and her in charge of covering household expenses and caring for her husband's health and four-year-old daughter's welfare. Because of the family's difficult situation, Leonor decided to start working as a street peddlar selling coffee as early as 4:00 a.m. Thanks to her dedication, Leonor was able to buy a fast food cart which she uses to work at night. She combines both activities to generate more income to cover household expenses.

Her greatest goal is to give her daughter a good education so she has access to more opportunities. In order to reach her goal, she is requesting a loan to buy ingredients for her business. She wants to increase her income and improve her family's quality of life.
