Yolanda is 62 years old. She is a hardworking woman with a lot of drive to get ahead. She lives with her partner, with whom she has a daughter with three children of her own. They live together in a house she owns. Yolanda's business is handicrafts sales. Her son makes these crafts at the detention facility where he is currently imprisoned. As part of a social inclusion program, the inmates make craftwork. She sells these ornaments to friends and to people who sell them as a traveling business, so that she can support her son. She has been in this business for over two years. She enjoys it because she feels she is helping her son who needs her. Besides, with the profits from her sales, she gets an income she can invest in order for her son to make more handicrafts. She is saving her profits to set up a handicraft shop in her own house, so that her son can work in it once he's reintegrated into society. This is her first loan with MFP and for that reason she hopes to get your support so that she can continue pursuing her goals. With the requested loan of 700 nuevos soles, she will set up a shop like the one her son has at the detention facility by purchasing tools and supplies to make handicrafted ornaments.
