Yanet's story

Yanet is 26 and a hard working woman. She lives with her husband of 10 years, William. They have three children, Estefanía, Josue y Jean Carlos. They care for their family in their own home, located in the Usibamba locality.

“Constant work,” is their motto. Beginning very early every morning, she prepares food that she will sell at the nearby school. Two years ago she opened a small business selling candy, drinks, and homemade food to the students and teachers that visit Yanet every snack time. She says that it was hard for her to get permission to sell inside the school, but nothing is difficult if you are persistent, she adds. At the same time and as a woman of the countryside, she plants oats in the land by her community. Every weekend they care for and fertilize the field so that they have a good harvest. Afterwards, she will sell in the market that takes place on Fridays in the city of Chupaca.

Now she wishes to work more diligently to improve her income. She belongs to the solidarity group “Usibamba,” and this is her third loan with MFP. She hopes to gain the support of all you to accomplish her goals. She commits to being punctual in her loan payments. With your support, Yanet will invest the money requested in the purchase of sweets for her business, in addition to oatmeal seeds to begin planning the field.
