Ana Maria has been working with Fundación for a long time. She is 36, has 2 children and she is the one who supplies what they need. Ana’s business is a general store and she has worked in it for more than 8 years. She began selling few products, and with loans she was able to widen her inventory to have the things that her customers requested. That is why she is asking for a loan-to expand her inventory and to buy more items such as: basic grains, soft drinks, juices natural drink, etc. She always wants to be able to arrange for improvements to her home.
