Yolanda

Doña Yolanda is a brave and hard-working woman who learned knitting and embroidery on her own 38 years ago by watching others. She has been doing these manual activities from her home, even more so since her husband's death 14 years ago. Since that time, she alone has supported her five children and finds in them strength and motivation.


Year after year, Yolanda has searched for ways to increase her income, and this had led her to develop her culinary skills; she now offers these services on a seasonal basis. Her wish is to continue supporting her children and increase the family's quality of life, so she is requesting this loan of $200 to purchase raw materials and supplies for her knitting business.
