Yovana's story

Yovana is a charismatic, hardworking, twenty-six year old woman. She lives in a rented house with her partner, thirty year old John, and her three children and wants to provide her family with a better quality of life.

She has been working independently for seven years and is very thankful to God for giving her this opportunity. She has a stall where she sells clothing for all types of people. She recognizes that this work is benefitting her as her sales have increased with the passage of time. The key to her success lies in the quality and price of her clothing. Her home is presently under construction, thanks to her savings and profits from her business. Eventually, she plans to establish the business in her home as she will be able to make sales more quickly and comfortably there.

This is her 14th loan with MFP so she has known about this microfinance institution since she started her business. Yovana is grateful for the trust in providing this loan and promises to be punctual with her payments, as in previous loans. She will use the loan to purchase more clothing for children and adults.
