Yolanda's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped Remodel the unoccupied rooms in her house to rent out.
Yolanda is a hard-working 41 year old woman who has known how to get her three children ahead. Anthony is 16, Lizeth is 10, and Johanna is 3. She has worked with much effort and dedication. It has not been easy, but she has done it alone. She lives very happily with them. Her work is assisting at different social events during the week ends. They contract her to help in the ticket office, in selling mementos, or to help in the people’s organization. That is how she spends the week ends. She honorably earns a living among the excitement of the shows. She is very proud to work hard to support her children. Yolanda says that this business is very profitable because the people who collaborate in the production are well paid for the events. Also, she is a nurse. She works in this profession during the week days. This is how she figured out how to support her children and give them a good education. It is so that in the future they will become good people. She knows that this will be the best inheritance that she could leave them. This is her third loan with MFP. She promises to be responsible with her payments because she does not like to have debts. She will use the money that she is asking for to remodel the unoccupied rooms in her house to rent out. That way she will get an additional income for her children.
