Leibys Janeth's story

Leibys, 29, has two underage children. She works every day, starting at 04:00 am. She starts her daily tasks by visiting the wholesale market and buying vegetables and fruits, to later sell them in her locality’s marketplace and in surrounding municipalities. Liebys says that her mother started this business. She later had a thrombotic stroke, which made it impossible for her to continue working. This is why Leibys took over.

She is today requesting a loan to buy supplies and to make some improvements to her establishment. With this, she expects to improve her economic situation and give her mother and children a dignified life.
