Yasmin America's story

Yasmin has a stall selling snacks. She is 31 years old and has three children, aged two, three and five years old. Yasmin is not in a relationship with her husband but he helps with costs for the children. At her stall, Yasmin sells tortillas, cakes and enchiladas. She has had the business for three years and learned the trade with a friend. The loan will be very useful for Yasmin and will be used to buy cheese, corn , rice, pork scratchings, firewood, oil and more. With this investment, she will be able to increase her income and her stock. It will also allow Yasmin to strengthen further her business and offer her family a better quality of life.
