I had a chance to to ride beside a young mother today named Erica. What an absolute sweetheart. She is a young mother and the wife of the pastor in San Benito. She has a quiet reassurance about her. Erica has a small business selling Avon products to help support the small salary that her husbands makes.
Erica said she is riding because she believes in what The Lending Journey does in Nicaragua and because she wants to be an example to her people of what it means to be a good entrepreneur. She wants to set the bench mark for her people.
She road the bike today in the same manner she lives her life, with a quiet reassurance and a determination to finish the race well.
