Lesbia Rosa's story

Doña Lesbia worked for years as a teacher. She is now retired, but she still supports herself thanks to her work as a seamstress. Lesbia is a widowed mother of five grown children. She has been able to make improvements to her house with the help of loans.

Lesbia is now requesting a loan in order to build a room for her daughter. Her previously loan only allowed her to buy part of the materials. This time she will buy items that she is lacking, such as zinc sheets and crossbeams. Doña Lesbia wants to support her daughter, who intends to become independent, in this manner.
