Acosta Yolanda's story

Yolanda, 40, is married and has two children, one of whom is at university. Her husband is a construction worker. Yolanda has operated a business making and selling ice cream for two years. She tells us that she had a business before raising and selling chickens and used her savings from it to buy a truck and a machine for making ice cream. Her customers like her ice cream, she says, and she is happy with the progress she has made. Yolanda is applying for a loan that she will use to buy a new engine and a display case for displaying other snacks. Her goal for the future is to add a second floor to the family's house, an addition that would improve their standard of living.
