Ana Del Socorro
Ana is originally from the town of San Juan Rio Coco, but currently lives in Estelí. She is single, a businesswoman by trade, and the mother three children ages 5, 6, and 9 years old. She tells of how she was working in Costa Rica but later decided to come to Estelí. She started with her own money which she earned in her previous job, and as she searched for better sources of income she decided to open her own grocery business there in Estelí. She has now owned this location for 25 years and it has been her sole business and way of making a living, though she also receives income in the form of remissions from family relatives abroad.

Ana is applying for the loan in order to purchase basic foodstuffs: rice, beans, sugar, oil, and soft drinks. She believes that purchasing these products in high demand will increase the amount of customers she gets and thereby increase her revenue. Her plans for the future are to keep increasing sales in her store and she hopes to expand her grocery and one day convert it into a corner store.
