Yeny's story

Yeny is 33, and a friendly woman. She started her family 12 years ago, and has four children; but only three of them live with her in the house she owns, which is located in the village of Ataura.

She is a determined woman who works hard to get ahead. Her finances stabilized three years ago, as she started working at a company that exports artichokes. There she has a very good, steady, monthly salary.

Also, in the afternoons, she raises sheep, which she fattens and then sells at a better price. For two days a month, she does her best to have a clean home, as her husband returns for several days from working in the mines. He does this to leave money and spend time with his children. He really likes that. Now they wish to save money to pay for their children's education, as they are growing up, and already must apply for university.

That's why she wants to take advantage of the Christmas season and sell seasonal products.

She belongs to the "Palomitas" solidarity group, and this is her fourth loan with MFP. She is grateful for the support all of you have given her, as it makes it possible for her to continue with her business. In addition, she promises to make her payments on time, as she likes to work with responsible and supportive people.

Once she receives her loan, Yeny will use the money she applied for to buy various and assorted Christmas decorations, as she wants to take advantage of the approaching season.
