Ana Basilia
Ana has had her business in the market of Chinandega for 25 years. In her business, she sells wood products such as closets and racks. She makes these in a carpentry workshop that she has in her home, with the help of her husband Batellas. The majority of women buy wooden washers when they give birth to their babies so that they can wash their little clothing on these washers.

She also makes piñatas. It is a gift that she has had since she was very young, when she learned to make piñatas. She then taught her daughters so that they could see how much life really cost. She is the mother of five children, all under her care, and three of them are studying. She strives to move them forward.

Her business was started with money that was contributed by her husband. She works from Monday to Sunday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. She is a woman who fights to get ahead and she likes working with the institution because they give her short-term financing with very low interest.
