Ana Maria's story

Ana María sells clothing in Roberto Huembés shopping center. She started her business 13 years ago with the help of her husband and today continues running the business with the help of her oldest child.

The store space is rented and she pays water and electricity bills separately. Ana María sells everyday, but there are good days and bad days.

She opted for financing to increase inventory and the variety of her products, which will help her gain more customers. Ana María plans to continue her clothing business, as it is her main source of income. She will buy clothing for younger women and women's underwear in a variety of colors and styles, in the hopes of improving sales and covering the salary of the young woman who works for her as a sales assistant.
