Ana Ofelia's story

Ana is a hard-working lady, who is 65 years old. She is in a relationship, and her partner is a farmer. Her children are already adults and live on their own.

Ana works making and selling sleeping mats. She purchases the tule (the material used to make them), makes the sleeping mats, and then sells them. In addition, she works in agriculture and has been supported with three Kiva loans that she invested in her businesses, and she has paid them all off completely.

Ana has demonstrated herself to be an enterprising and responsible woman. She needs a new loan to purchase more tule for making and selling sleeping mats. Her dream is to improve her home since the conditions are not adequate. But in spite of everything, she is glad to be a humble woman.
