Ana Julia
Ana Julia O. lives in Soyapango, a municipality in the administrative district of San Salvador. Ana Julia lives in a neighborhood with a very high flow of working class citizens with little income, and this flow of people gave Ana Julia an idea to start her own business. With much courage and vision Ana Julia opened a small eatery for workers who cannot cook their own meals. She offers lunches and all types of home-cooked meals at a low price. Her business has grown very well, and in addition Ana Julia also runs a shop selling tortillas and sells Avon products to increase her income. Ana Julia is now seeking a loan to buy new products and materials in order to continue expanding her eatery, and in turn, expand the services offered to all of those workers in the neighborhood.
