A loan of $750 helped to buy spare parts.

Yelena's story

Yelena is 38 years old. She is a very cheerful, kind and responsible woman who lives with her partner. The couple have a 6-year-old son. They live in their own home and are trying to provide their son with a better quality of life.

Yelena's business is selling carbonated drinks. She also has a motorcycle taxi that she rents out and this makes an additional income for her household. In addition, she owns a small farm where she works together with her partner. She has been working in these businesses for two years and has the support of her partner. What she enjoys about her work is that she works alongside her son and is able to care for him. Yelena's home is located in a strategic position and so she has customers every day. This means she has good sales and makes good profits. She hopes to be able to keep her business going as she feels comfortable with what she has.

This will be Yelena's fourth loan from MFP. She hopes to receive your support so that she can invest in her business. She will use the sum she has requested to buy spare parts for her motorcycle taxi. She will also pay the mechanic who will refurbish her motorcycle and buy drinks so that she has a greater variety in her store.
