Yolanda
Yolanda, 44 years old, is a mother and a cheerful go-getter. She lives in her own home with her 3 children: Cristian, who is 12, Gonzalo, who is 10, and Gino, who is 3 years old. They are the motivation for all of her efforts.

She has a business selling traditional Peruvian skirts called "polleras." Her store is located in the Tupac Amaru market, (an important market in the city of Juliaca), and it is very busy due to the colorful models sold, her great personality as a saleswoman, and her low prices. What she likes most about her work is to chat with the neighboring tradespeople about the things happening in the market. She has been carrying out this activity for 8 years, and what she finds most difficult is bringing the polleras from the city of Desaguadero (an area bordering Bolivia,) because it is a long and tiring journey.

Over time, she hopes to have a bigger store where she can sell her garments in greater comfort.

This is her 6th loan with MFP. She is very pleased to have this credit opportunity, and she is prepared to make her payments on time. In her communal bank she has been well-received by the other members, which makes her feel very happy. With the 1,000 Peruvian soles requested, she will buy more skirts to better stock her store.

Su negocio es la venta de faldas llamadas “polleras”, su tienda está ubicada en el mercado Tupac Amaru (mercado Importante de la ciudad de Juliaca), la cual es muy concurrida debido a los coloridos modelos que vende, el gran carisma que posee para vender y lo bajo de sus precios.
Lo que más le gusta de su trabajo es conversar con sus vecinas de venta y comentar sobre las cosas que suceden en el mercado, lleva 8 años realizando esta actividad y considera que lo más difícil de su trabajo, es traer las polleras desde la ciudad de Desaguadero (distrito fronterizo con Bolivia), ya que es un viaje muy largo y cansado.
Con el tiempo, anhela tener una tienda más grande donde pueda vender sus prendas con más comodidad.

Este es el sexto préstamo de Yolanda con MFP, se siente muy feliz de la oportunidad de crédito y está dispuesta a pagar todas sus cuotas a tiempo.
