Yolanda
Yolanda, 47, is a good, friendly, and hardworking woman. She lives with her partner in her mother-in-law's house and together they share a desire to get ahead.

Yolanda's job is selling soda and ice cream. Every Monday she receives her orders at a distribution center with which she works. She takes them home and puts them in the freezer so they'll be ready for her customers to eat.

In addition to selling soda she also sells ice and fruit ice cream that she makes herself. She has done this job for more than four years with the help of her mother-in-law, who substitutes for her when she's working as a nurse in a private hospital in the city.

She still remembers the first day she began selling beverages, and all her fears and doubts. Little by little, though, she started establishing herself and learning the business. Now she's a great saleswoman and she has a lot of customers. She has a lot of plans to become a beverage distributor, but for now she only wants to increase her business and to be recognized.

This is her fourth loan with MFP. She's grateful to those who make her loan possible to continue with her goals. She's also committed to making her payments punctually as she did with her previous loans. She's very happy to belong to her communal bank because all the members are very good, friendly, and supportive.

With the requested amount (1500 soles [PEN]) she'll buy a large quantity of soda and ice cream, as well as the ingredients and other supplies to continue making ice cream with regional fruits.
