Lesly Yasmina's story

Sra. Lesly Yasmina, 35, lives with her husband and two young children. They live in a house they own in San Lorenzo, a town in southern Honduras.
Doña Lesly has operated an ice-cream-sales business for 4 years. She buys wholesale supplies of ice cream, of all kinds and flavors, and goes out every day to sell it.
Doña Lesly is applying for a loan, part of which she will use to buy ice cream and the rest to pay for the labor and supplies she needs to make improvements to her house. She expects the loan will allow her to complete the work.
