Doña Iris is applying for the loan of 15,000 lempiras to buy materials such as cement, sand, gravel, and rods to build a sink in her home and to buy firewood and corn to prepare tortillas. With the help of this loan, Doña Iris wants to cover her need for financing to complete her projects. Her dream is to have a good house so that her children will be well.
