Yina Mercedes's story

Yina is 20 years old and has dedicated herself to the sale of food for the past two years in her stand in Puerto Rico, Bolivia. She began to work with her mother when she was little. This loan is her third in sequence from the institution. Yina is going to use this loan to buy a motorcycle, which she needs to do her work efficiently by moving rapidly to buy ingredients that she sometimes needs. She needs to run a long distances because she lives in a rural zone and the distance between locations is very large. The path is not in good condition so a motorcycle is very useful. She asks for this loan to continue improving her work. Yina is a hardworking person who feels happy for the opportunity to be granted a loan given that this is her only activity which permits her to support herself.
