Ana Ruth
Ana is 50 years old and lives in her own home with her husband and their two children. She has had a food stall near her home for five years. With the money she makes from her sales, she pays for household expenses. She is a fighting woman whose goal is to give the best to herself so that her family doesn't lack anything they need for their survival. She has the great satisfaction of having steady customers because her stall is in a well-traveled area. Ana wants to grow her stall, that is to say, buy tables, chairs, and more basic materials such as rice, chickens, meat, beans, fruit, vegetables, etc. in order to vary her menu and have a little more money coming in. She does not, however, have enough income for this investment, and that is why she has come to Kiva partner INTEGRAL to request a loan and be able to purchase the aforementioned and so earn more revenues to have better financial stability with her family.
