Yolanda
Yolanda, 54, is a woman who is a leader. She lives with Walter, her husband of 28 years. They have two children together: Mabel and José who they care for in her own house. She’s her association’s treasurer because she’s always liked to manage money. Thanks to that, she now has a well-equipped and well-stocked hardware store. According to what she says, she does very well in her business because she’s open every day with no days off. But since she’s a very hardworking woman, this isn’t all she does. She also sells food on Sundays at a space at home. On his part, her husband works leasing heavy machinery to state institutions and private construction firms that pay him a monthly payment; he’s able to pay his children’s university education with it and he wants to provide them with a better education. Now, she wants to stock her store better with all possible materials. “There are days when big buyers come and take cement and other materials in quantity and I don’t have enough,” she affirms.

She’s a member of the “IDME” communal bank and this is MFP loan # 28. In all these years, she’s been able to improve her business because she used her money very intelligently. On the other hand, she once again promises to make her installment payments. It pleases her to be part of her association where all the members are mutually supportive and “like a family,” she affirms. Yolanda will use the money to buy sand, cement and other merchandise to stock her hardware store.
