Ana Maria
Ana is 32 years old and lives in Primavera de Duran (an urban area that originally consisted of irregular terrain with several hills, streams, and lakes that still exist as remnants of a disappearing ecosystem). She manages a store in her house made of reeds (the bars that appear in the photo help protect her store since it is inside her home).

In order to cover her family’s expenses, she decided to invest her savings and begin selling from her house. Ana bought rice, beverages, and supplies. With effort over time, she was able to expand her business.

Ana will use this loan to buy rice, sugar, and oil for her store. In the future, she wants to restock her business with new products and build a cement house.
