Ana Lucia's story

Ana is a 39-year-old married woman. She has 3 children who are getting an education. Ana and her husband are day laborers. The lack of income to pay for household necessities spurred Ana and her husband to start raising livestock. Ana is a woman with a good reputation in her community. She is friendly, respectful, and very responsible, which has earned her the respect of her neighbors.

Ana has limited financial resources and needs a loan to buy a cow to produce milk. This will allow her to bring in more income to cover the costs of her children's education. She wants them to be professionals and to have a better future.
