Lesbia Escorcia
Lesbia is single. Her children are married and independent. She sells second-hand clothes, quilts and sheets as a mobile vendor. She leaves her house every morning with the hope of making some sales in order to cover her basic household expenses, such as food, and water and electricity bills, as well as other essential items.

At present she has very few products. For this reason, she is requesting her first loan with Afodenic, so that she can buy more bundles of used clothes.
