Ana Melba
Ana, 36, lives with her husband and her daughter who's in kindergarten. She and her husband have been selling fruit for more than a year.

The business has given them good results. They have a vehicle that's not in very good condition that occasionally gives them problems. They have adapted some iron rods where they put the crates filled with tomatoes, chiles, cabbage, beets, etc. Every day they go through all the streets of the community until they sell everything.

The loan she's requesting is to buy tomatoes, chiles, cabbage, beets, etc., because the Christmas season is approaching and she needs a lot of merchandise to satisfy her customers. With the investment she'll be able to get more income and have financial stability in her family.

Her goal is to set up a store in her house and tend to it herself so her husband can go out to sell the fruits and vegetables in the car.
