A loan of $550 helped to buy animals and feed.

Yessica's story

Yessica, age 31, is an enterprising and responsible woman. She lives with her life partner, and they have four children; ages 17, 15, 9, and 1. They want to get ahead together. They live in their own house, where they give their children an education and work daily to give them a better quality of life.

Yessica’s work consists of buying and selling. She raises chickens, ducks, hens, and pigs. She also has plants that produce good seasonal fruits. She also owns a “mototaxi” (three wheeled motorized vehicle) that she rents out, which means one more income for her household.

She has been doing these business activities for five years. What she likes is what she does in the company of her family. Every three days the products that she harvests are taken to the wholesale market in the city where she sells them.

This will be her sixth loan with MFP. She hopes to have the help of each one of you in order to continue with her work. She will use the requested loan to buy animals and feed.
