Yanina's story

Yanina, 27, lives with Osvaldo with whom she has two children who are 11 and 8 years old. For now, this family lives in a rented house in the city. Of serene, constant temperament, Yanina works selling clothes in the markets in two cities. She learned the clothing business from her sisters. Because of this she travels to Lima constantly which is where she gets her merchandise by the dozen or by the hundreds. She’s been in business for five years and she likes the rhythm of work. She travels every two weeks to the clothing designers’ stores and buys items like pants, sweaters, jackets, shirts, etc. because her customers place more orders every time. She sells from place to place on market days in the city of Tarma (Thursdays and Sundays) and earns good profits thanks to the regular customers she’s won over in the years she’s been in sales. The business does not rest which is why she once again is asking for your support to acquire merchandise. This will be MFP loan #5 and she commits to be punctual with her monthly payments. She likes working in the “Mirando un future major” (Seeing a better future) communal bank because she enjoys the meetings and the educational chats. Yanina will be able to use what she’s requested to buy clothes to then sell in the Thursday and Sunday markets.
