Ana Antonia
Ana is a native of Waspan, a town located in the North Atlantic Autonomous Region of the country, and currently lives in Granada. She's 58 years old and married, has four adult children, and is a merchant. She owns a local store where she has sold basic supplies for 10 years.

She began her own business through her husband, who set up a shop and store for machine parts. The space was big, so they decided to divide it and she set up her grocery store there. She also sells cooked beans and bottled "chicha," a typical beverage made from fermented corn, sugar, cinnamon, clove, vanilla, and ice that is in demand because it's cheap and because it's part of the ancestral culture to drink this traditional beverage.

Ana is requesting a Kiva loan to buy basic supplies such as rice, beans, sugar, corn, oil, and bottles to sell the chicha. This way she'll have more of these products in stock and sell more.

Her plan for the future is to expand her store more, adding new products to continue growing in her business.
