Yanet's story

Yanet, 38, is a down-to-earth and hardworking woman. She lives in her own house with her husband Severo, 40, and their 3 children, in the village of Picoy. Early every morning, Yanet goes out to work in her fields, since she knows that the prices she gets for the vegetables she grows (such as potatoes and peas) depend on the quality of her products. She sells her products at the wholesale market in the city of Tarma, where she can get the best price for them. She loves cultivating her land and has been doing it with her husband for 25 years. The hardest part is transporting the products to market. Over time, she would like buy more land so as to increase her production. She has also begun selling clothing and accessories made from recyclable materials, such as bottles, boxes, popsicle sticks, and so on. She sells these at a stall in the indoor market in Tarma. She is also planning to start making ceramics this month, and she is sure to succeed, thanks to her good character and her innate creativity.

Yanet counts on your support to continue her work. She is a member of the “Exaltación Santa Cruz” community bank, and this is her fourth loan with MFP. She once again promises to meet her payments on time. She is glad to be part of the community bank because all the members are responsible and friendly people. Yanet will use the money she is requesting to buy a small kiln for the ceramics that she is starting to make with recycled objects, as well as to buy various kinds of clothing to sell.
