A loan helped increase her business capital.


Yaneth's story

Yaneth, 27 years old, is a cheerful young woman. She lives in her parents' house, and they have always supported her so she could be successful in life. She has a four-year-old daughter, and hopes to be able to give her a good eduction. From the wee hours of the morning, Yaneth sits at her stall in the Santa Bárbara market in Juliaca, selling cheeses. Her customers seek her out because she is a charismatic saleswoman and always offers them a small when they buy one of her delicious cheeses. She is somewhat shy, though, and we couldn't get her to smile for a photo. She's been working in the market 15 years, and what she likes best about her job is chatting with the women at the neighboring stalls. She wants to develop her business and better supply her stall. What she likes least is withstanding the intense cold inside the market, but she is nevertheless aware that she has to do anything she can to improve her quality of life. This is Yaneth's first loan with MFP, and she hopes to make all her payments on time, since she doesn't want to hurt the other members of her community bank, where she is cherished for the happiness she brings. She will use the requested loan to increase her working capital and be able to better supply her business.
