A loan of $575 helped to pay the rent of the facility where she sells her beverages.


Yolanda's story

Yolanda is 36 years old, a single mother with 3 children. They live together in her own house located in the district of Pichari. Yolanda is an entrepreneur who makes a living selling softdrinks and chicha morada (a non-alcoholic drink made from purple corn, fruit and spices). She began this business three years ago and at the start it was not so profitable. She thought of closing it but she persisted, and to this day she still has it. What she likes the most about this work is that it is not exhausting nor heavy, and the only inconvenience she has is at times she can not easily find the supplies she needs to prepare her drinks. In the future she wants to open a place where she can sell her beverages because currently she sells in the street under a little canvas awning. This will be her second loan through MFP, and she promises to once again make her payments on time. She will use the 1500 soles to pay the rent of the facility where she sells her beverages.
