Ana Lilian
Ana is 28 years old. She lives with her common-law husband.

She has had 8 years of experience in running her own business, a beauty salon. She comments that she learned this trade because she could not continue going to school and decided to take a course in cosmetology. With the help of her husband, she set up her beauty shop. Before, Ana only carried out household duties in her home.

To buy the materials that she needs in her business, she travels by bus to a city in the eastern part of the country. The trip takes an hour, since it is about 35 kilometers from her house to the city. She goes there to make her purchases because they give her better prices there. Ana leaves very early to make her purchases so that she can come back and tend to her business, since she has many customers.

Ana is applying to Fudación Campo for a loan to buy dyes, bleaches, pliers, crochet hooks, gloves, spray creams, and scissors, among other items, and also to pay back another loan from the foundation. With the investment, she will have a greater quantity of products at her disposal, so that she tend to her customers and offer them better service, obtaining a greater income for her and her family, since she will help her husband with the household expenses.

Ana plans to have a better and more well-stocked shop and to hire a person to help her give better service, since at this time she works alone in the shop.

Ana tiene 28 años de edad, vive con su compañero de vida.

Ella tiene 8 años de administrar su propio negocio de sala de belleza. Ella comenta que aprendió este oficio debido a que no pudo seguir estudiando y decidió sacar un curso de cosmetología y con el apoyo de su compañero de vida instalo su sala de belleza. Antes Ana solo se dedicaba a realizar los oficios domésticos en su casa.

Para comprar los materiales que necesita en su negocio, se traslada a una ciudad del oriente del país en autobús durante una hora, ya que hay unos 35 kilómetros de su casa a la ciudad, ella va a comprar ahí por que le dan mejores precios. Ana sale muy temprano a realizar las compras para regresar a atender su negocio ya que tiene muchos clientes.

Ana solicita el préstamo a Fundación Campo, para comprar tintes, descolorantes, alicates, agujas de crocho, guantes, cremas spray, tijeras, entre otros más y la otra parte para cancelar otro crédito a la Fundación. Con la inversión dispondrá de mayor cantidad de productos para atender a sus clientes y brindarles un mejor servicio obteniendo mayores ingresos para ella y su familia, ya que ayudara a su esposo con los gastos del hogar.

Ana planea contar con un mejor establecimiento y más surtido, contratar a una persona para que le ayude a prestar un mejor servicio, pues por el momento solo ella trabaja en el local.
