Yolanda's story

Yolanda, 44, lives with her husband; they have three dependent children. One son attends school in the city of Monteagudo; he’s in secondary school. Her daughter is attending university in Sucre and her other son is in rehab in Sucre, he has physical paralysis.

Yolanda’s daily life is worrisome because of her son’s health; he needs daily care and this requires expenditures of money and sometimes her resources are just not enough. Yolanda’s main activity is baking and selling bread. Her husband has a small carpentry shop where she manufactures doors which is what he knows best how to make.

She will use the loan she’ll be granted to buy more ingredients used to make bread to increase production and earn higher income which is what she needs to improve her family’s living conditions.
