Yolanda
Yolanda is sixty years old and a widow. She has three adult children who live on their own. She lives with her nephew, who always helps and supports her. They live in a home they own.

Yolanda's business is sewing, a trade she learned by watching and helping her sister in a small shop, where she acquired the necessary knowledge and experience. She decided to start her own business by investing her own capital, her and her late husband's savings. She purchased a sewing machine, which is her main work tool, and started sewing and looking for customers on her own, over fifteen years ago.

She considers her business to be profitable because it provides her with good earnings.

She enjoys her work because it generates enough income for her to pay her home expenses, and also because she likes sewing and making lingerie and all types and styles of clothing. On the other hand, she doesn't enjoy the physical exhaustion that comes from staying in the same position for long hours while sewing her work. But she is not disheartened by this, she keeps working and doing her best to continue moving forward. In the future she would like to buy a riveting machine, which would make her job a lot easier and would allow her business to expand.

This is her 21st loan with MFP. She is grateful for the financial support she has received and wants to continue having it, which is why she is committed to paying her installments as she did with previous loans. She is also happy with the group she belongs to beacuse she considers its members to be responsible and supportive people.

She will invest the requested amount of 1,500 nuevos soles in purchasing sewing materials, such as fabric, elastics, thread, and other items. She will look for the best quality at the lowest price. This will allow her to increase her stock of available materials for her work.
