Lesly Yalila's story

Lesly is an honest, hardworking, and responsible young woman. She lives with her parents and her two children, and she is a single mother and lives in southern Honduras. Her business is a snack shop and used clothing store.

Lesly is in need of a loan to buy used clothing; like pants, shirts, shorts, tights; meats, corn, condiments, etc. With this loan, she hopes to grow her sales by having more products and merchandise to fill the needs of the customers who visit her each day, since this is a very productive agricultural and industrial zone. With this increase in income for the household, she hopes that her family will live better.

In the future, Lesly hope to find a better physical space for the business to be able to sell products near a traffic roundabout since at this moment, her business does not have a fixed location, and this way she would be able to continue helping out her family, now that they are in dire straits. She also hopes that her children will finish their schooling and become good people with better opportunities for their future.
