A loan of $1,100 helped to purchase pipes.

Yolanda's story

Yolanda has lived in Huancayo for more than 20 years. She lives with her husband and four children. Eleven years ago, she took advantage of the strategic location of her home in her neighborhood and of the need for a hardware store in the area. She decided to invest her savings in this business. She is in charge of making sales and managing her business, which is now stable because she also sells extra items (sand and gravel) . Her warehouse is on the large patio next to her house. Her four children and her husband help Yolanda with monitoring and ordering more merchandise. The whole family shares the goal of improving the business and being a major supplier of construction materials. She already has a long credit history and record of being punctual with her payments. This will be her 24th loan through Kiva partner MFP. Over all this time, the loans have been a great help in maintaining capital and business growth. This time the loan will be used to purchase pipes wholesale.
