Yolanda Breatriz's story

Yolanda is a member of the Gualaceñitas community bank whose members live in Gualaceo canton. This canton is very popular with visitors owing to the charm and warmth of a city which is both ancient and modern. The local cuisine is wide ranging and the local people have not lost their traditions. They make handicrafts and, most importantly, they are warm and kind people.

Yolanda is 56 years old, divorced, and has two children from her marriage who are grown up, work and help her financially. She does not own her own home but lives in a rental house.

Yolanda makes and sells fast food. She has her own business and works from Sunday to Sunday. She does not work fixed hours.

This is the second loan that our member has requested through her community bank and she will invest it in buying products such as bread, meat, sausages, potatoes, oil, napkins, etc. in order to continue in her business. Her dream is to travel to Panama.
