Yolanda Monica's story

Yolanda lives in Isla Trinitaria: here she pays rent for a shop where she sells fruits. This is a family activity and she has been engaged in it for various years, working alone because her husband travels around town selling their products. She has started this activity with her husband thanks to a loan received from a family member, and she engages in her job with great energy and determination in order to progress in life. She sells every kind of fruit in her shop, such as oranges, watermelons, papayas and bananas; she also prepares fruit salads and natural juices on demand. She works there all day long, as she has no children. The loan she is requesting will be used to buy fruits, colas, rice, canned food, sugar, coffee and other products as she wants to stock up her inventory in order to open a store by taking advantage of some free space in her locale. Her biggest dream is to succeed in buying a van so that buying items will be easier for her and she will be able to offer fresher products.
