Yolanda's story

Yolanda, 54, is a born leader. She lives with Walter, her husband of 28 years, and they have two children, Mabel and José, who they care for in their own house in the city of Chilca. She is the treasurer of her association and has always enjoyed managing money. Thanks to this, now she has a hardware store that is well stocked. She says business is going well, since she opens every day of the week. And since she his a hard worker, that's not all she does; she also sells food on Sunday from home. Her husband rents heavy equipment to state institutions and private constructors, and earns a monthly salary which pay for their children's university studies, so they can receive a good education.

Now she wants to expand her business and sell beer wholesale. They started selling beer not too long ago and now want to expand the business because demand is high and they have done well in the past few months. She belongs to the communal bank "IDME" and this is her 26th loan through MFP. She is counting on your support so she can continue toward her goals. She is committed to paying back the loan on time and is grateful to the communal bank because all of the members are responsible and caring.

Yolanda plans to use the loan to buy merchandise for her businesses, i.e. beer and hardware merchandise.
