Leonor Sandra
Leonor lives in Libertad. She started on the promenade of the beach by making braids for the tourists who visited the area. Little by little, her income was improving. That is how she started buying material to make bracelets, braids, and chains, etc.

She currently works at the Salinas beaches in the morning. She offers handcrafted hair braids, bracelets and chains to the tourists. Her difficulty is the distance from her house to the Salinas beach. She is single and does not have children. Her dream is to have her own handcrafted braid center.

Therefore, she wants the loan to buy thread to make the braids and other items to sell. She will do this to get more income.
