A loan of $275 helped to buy clothes.


Lesly's story

Lesly, 36, lives with her two children in a house located in the community of Altos de la Cruz, San Lorenzo, in south Honduras. For the last three years she’s been in the business of selling used clothes from place to place. Her customers are friends, family members and neighbors she visits three times a week. Lesly is requesting a 5,000 Lempira loan to buy pants, shirts, blouses, t-shirts, children’s clothes and sweatshirts because she sells quite a bit of clothes this season. With support from the loan she intends to cover her need for business financing to obtain higher profits and improve her living conditions a bit. Lesly’s dream is to grow in business and do some home improvements. San Lorenzo, Honduras - October, 2012.
