Lesly Yalila's story

Lesly lives in the city of Choluteca. She has had a business of making and selling tortillas for over ten years. She started when she was young and helped her mother. She really likes what she does.

Thanks to this business she has managed to support her two children; she is a single mother. With a lot of effort she has them going to school. Her dream is to be able to have them graduate and have the opportunities that she was not able to have. She lives with her parents and siblings.

She is requesting a loan for 12,000 lempiras to buy corn, firewood, lime powder, and products to sell sweets.
