Yovana
Yovana, 34, is an honest and hardworking woman. She and her husband Sixto, 49, have 3 children. They own the house they live in. Yovana gets up early in the mornings to prepare food for her family, while her spouse farms coffee, pineapple and bananas to support the family's basic needs and household expenses.

It has been 14 years, and what she likes most is working outside. So after preparing food for the day, Yovana quickly weeds her land, helping her husband earn more income from their farm. On the weekends Yovana sells food from the door of her home, taking advantage of her cooking skills that she is well known for amongst her devoted customers.

Her work is profitable, and with time she plans to set up a soda fountain and food counter. This is Yovana's second loan from MFP and she is happy working with the members of her community group. With this loan, she will buy sacks of organic fertilizer to spread on her crops, which are native to the area.
