A loan of $400 helped to purchase a cord of carrots in order to sell them.

Yolanda's story

Yolanda is 25 years old and lives with her life partner. They have two children ages three and six, and the oldest is in school. They live in Sololá. She works growing vegetables like carrots, potatoes and corn. She harvests and sells them in her place of residence. She has been doing this work since she was six years old. Since the vegetables maintain better prices at market, she wants to continue cultivating vegetables in more places in order to obtain better income. That is why she is asking for a loan of 3000 quetzales (Guatemalan currency). The money will be used to purchase a cord of carrots in order to sell them and thus improve her income.

She dreams of having a better home and helping her children in their studies so that in the future they can develop in their work.
