Yolanda's story

Yolanda is a long-time client of the institution, who has been working with us for the past seven years. She is a hard working person with a good attitude who is always looking after the well being of her family.

Yolanda sells food on Fifth Street. She has a permanent location and begins cooking very early in the morning and continues to the afternoon. She then spends time cleaning her pots and pans. She has two children, one of whom is school-aged and the other works as a house painter, and as a computer repairman.

She will use the money from this loan to buy supplies and ingredients, such as rice, cooking oil, potatoes, etc. She will also buy some pots and plates in which to cook her food and be able to better serve her customers. She is very grateful to Emprender and Kiva for the trust they have placed in her by granting this loan.
