Ana Dianira
Ana lives with her husband and their adult children. Each person in her household contributes a little to pay the family's basic expenses. Ana makes a living selling tortillas. She uses a grinder to make the masa (dough for tortillas) and she cooks them in a small household oven. Her two daughters then help her to sell the tortillas she makes. Ana works from 6 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day.

Currently, Ana needs to buy corn and a grill for making pupusas (a thick corn tortilla stuffed with cheese, fried pork rind, chicken, or refried beans) that she can use to make more tortillas. She is requesting a loan in order to invest in these items for her business. This will help her to improve her business and give her more flexibility and let her better attend to her customers.

Ana's goal is to strengthen her business and keep her customers satisfied by providing quick service and high-quality tortillas.
