Yolanda Maribel's story

Yolanda, an extroverted and affable woman with a lot of faith in God, works very hard in her clothing sales business with her husband, who also works very hard, so she can get her family ahead.

Yolanda's very grateful about her life because of all the opportunities she has been given. She will not have all the luxuries, but love and understanding in her family will never be lacking.

Yolanda has seen her business grow but she doesn't have enough capital to better stock her merchandise, so she's requesting some help to buy blouses, pants, leg-warmers, jackets, dresses, leggings, sweatshirts, and other garments. She hopes with this to earn more income for her household.
