Yobana
Yobana is 29 and single. She live in her wooden house with her 12-year-old daughter. Five years ago, she opened a small grocery store, and this is her main income source. Previously, she sold food at a local fair. She was able to save enough money from this to stop making food and to open her current business so that she could be at home with her young daughter.

Her relatives helped her set up a space in her house facing the street and buy some merchandise to test the business. With her desire to get ahead, the business slowly prospered. A while back, she had to close the business due to health issues, but now it is open to the public. Yobana is a very happy person, which attracts regular customers, to whom she sells basic items and a range of other products: grains, canned goods, and frozen beverages in demand in this tropical climate.

This is her second loan cycle, and she is happy for the funding she has received. She needs 1,000 soles to buy food products such as rice, sacks of sugar, noodles, and vegetables.
