Yovany's story

Yovany is a member of the Lila (Lilac) communal bank. What she likes best are the savings incentives because at home she can’t do it; she also likes the easy loan terms.

Yovany has lived with her partner for a long time and after all these years plans to marry him this year. She has two daughters that are in school and her greatest wish is that they have all the comforts and that they become professionals.

Yovany works as a teacher during the mornings but she also bakes typical regional bread using a leased oven. She learned this skill from her mother.
She also tends to customers’ orders.

Yovany is asking for a 2000 sol loan to buy cinnamon, coconut and vanilla extract in quantity in Lima.
