A loan of $375 helped to buy a freezer.


Yuly's story

Yuly, who is 36 years old, is a hardworking single mother of three: Luisa 9, Kay 3, and Alexandra 2. She lives in her own home located in the Palomar Union community (central Peruvian forest). This businesswoman's work is that of selling ice creams and chocotejas ( a type of candy based of chocolate). According to this accomplished woman, her sales are plentiful since there are no other stores around and the heat in the area is astonishing.
Yuly also grows coffee and bananas and sells them to buyers who frequent the area. However, she still has a long way to go. She needs to buy a freezer to keep her ice cream and popsicles cold and she affirms that "she is lacking a small amount." This is her first loan with MFP and is very enthusiastic about the work she will carry out with the other members of her communal bank. With the requested loan she plans on buying the freezer to be able to increase her ice cream sales.
