Yanet's story

Yanet is 27 years old and is a working woman who has lived with her husband, William, for 10 years. They have three children: Estefanía, Josué y Jean Carlo. They have their own home that is located in the neighborhood of Usibamba.

Her motto is: always work. Every morning, very early, she prepares her children's food to take with them to school. And two years ago she opened her own little business where she sells candies, drinks and home made food to students and teachers who visit her stand for refreshments. She says that it was difficult to obtain permission to sell her items inside the school, "but nothing is impossible if you are consistent," she says. At the same time, being someone from the countryside, she also cultivates oats on land in her community. Every weekend she fertilizes and takes care of her fields so she has a good harvest, which she will sell in the city markets on Fridays. Yanet wants to work more determinedly to improve her profits and to do so she is starting to make yogurt with milk from cows.

She belongs to the group "Usibamba," and this will be her fourth credit that she has with MFP. She promises to be punctual and pay her installments.

Yanet will invest her money in the purchase of candies for her business as well as seeds to start her next sowing.
