A loan helped to buy a motorbike.

Yola's story

Yola is the mother of two children. From a very young age she started to work as a seamstress. Her spouse abandoned her and left her to fend for herself with her two children. She started from the bottom. Today, her children help her with her activities. She is a farmer and she and her children live off the work in her fields. This is the first time she’s gotten a loan from our institution. It will be used to buy a motorbike so that she can go into a new business providing mototaxi services. One of her sons will be the mototaxi driver to help with family expenses. It is worth mentioning that Yola is asking for the loan as a result of her coworkers, who already work as mototaxi drivers, commenting about the good credit conditions under which our institution operates.
