Yanett's story

Yanett is from Santa Rosa district. She is 23 years old and a woman who is very dedicated to her work. She lives with 21 year-old Julio and they have three children. They live together in their own home where understanding and mutual support reign.

Yanett's business is working the land. She grows coffee and coca leaf. In total, she has 3 hectares of land. Yanett's parents taught her how to work the soil and she grew up with the desire to own her own farm. She used some savings that she had made in order to fulfil her wish of owning her own plot of land. Yanett knows a lot about the hard work of the countryside where she has been working for 20 years. On harvest days she has the support of day laborers who transport her harvested produce for a certain stretch so that she can then sell it. Yanett feels very dedicated to her work because, thanks to her daily effort, she can see that her plants are very productive and she makes good profits. She tells us that she does not like the winter season because during those months insects abound which harms her yield.

Yanett is requesting this loan so that she can buy her own vehicle. She will buy a motorbike for carrying cargo so that she can transport her produce to the markets more quickly. Over time, she hopes to be able to buy more land and vary the crops she grows so that she can provide her family with good financial stability. This is Yanett's eighth loan from MFP. She has been very punctual in making her previous loan repayments and she hopes to continue being punctual in repaying this loan too. Yanett is a very well-liked member of her community bank. She will use the 3,000 Peruvian soles she has requested to buy her own vehicle, a motorbike for carrying cargo, so that she can transport her produce to the markets more quickly.
