Ana Maria
Ana is a woman of 58. She lives with her children in Parcona district in the city of Ica. She is a very friendly, hard-working and enthusiastic person.

Unfortortunately, for various reasons she separated from her husband. Since then, she has been devoting all her efforts to helping her family get ahead in life.

Ana was not able to study for a professional career, but would have very much liked to have pursued a technical program in dressmaking. In her free time she likes to go for walks through the inviting streets of her city, and sometimes she cooks a very delicious "tallarines rojos" (Peruvian spaghetti in red sauce) to share with her family.

With much effort and enthusiasm, Ana got her small business going selling beauty products. Every day from an early hour of the morning, she begins her work. She can work approximately eight hours, and believes that it is going well because of the variety of products, and because of the friendly service she offers her customers.

Ana is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, as thanks to the help provided, she will be able to purchase a display case and merchandise such as perfumes, cosmetics, lotions, and other products. This way, Ana will have a better-equipped and stocked store. She will be able to display and offer her products.
With this, she hopes to be able to increase her sales and her income, which will be a great help to her in little by little expanding her business.
