Yolanda is 22 years old and lives with her parents in Cayambe which is half an hour from Otavalo, in the north of Ecuador. Yolanda describes herself as somebody who is very responsible in her work.
Yolanda works with her parents milking cows so that they can sell their milk. This is the second loan that she has requested from Fodemi and she will use it to buy a dairy cow to increase her production and her sales. This will help her a lot in supporting her family.
