Yolanda Irene's story

Yolanda and her husband live in an area about 25 minutes outside the city. They do not have any dependents because their children are grown up. Her husband is not in very good health because of his old age. Yolanda works at a food stall in the city market and serves breakfasts on Saturdays. She wakes up at 5 a.m. and goes to her stall to sell her breakfasts. They have a low income and do not have their own house. Furthermore, the medical treatment for her husband is expensive because they do not have health insurance. With the loan she is requesting, Yolanda hopes to increase her income and improve her quality of life so that her sick husband who is receiving treatment gets better.
