A loan of $850 helped to buy merchandise (clothing).

Ana Teresa's story

Ana Teresa, who is 64, lives in the town of Santa Bárbara in Colombia. She has always enjoyed working and, for 25 years, she has had her stall in the main park, where she sells men's and women's clothing. Her best customers are the farmers in the regions bordering the town. Ana’s greatest dream is to have proper business premises, as the biggest problem she faces is the climate which, in the rainy season, forces her to pack up her stock and lose money. She is currently applying for a loan to buy merchandise with which to stock her stall and improve her sales. She hopes to be able to enjoy a pleasant old age with her four children, as she lost her husband several years ago.
