A loan helped to make the wholesale purchase of raw materials she needs to make cheese.

Ana Cecilia's story

Ana lives in a family member’s house with her life companion and her 4-year-old child, who is her dependent. When Ana was an adolescent, she worked with her grandmother making cheese. Thirteen years ago, she took the initiative to start her own business. She buys the milk to process and then sells her product.

She will use the loan she is requesting to purchase milk in order to strengthen the inventory of her business to be able to increase her production of fresh cheese. This investment will help her to make the wholesale purchase of raw materials she needs for making cheese. She will also make the most of the winter season at the market when it is easier to acquire the raw materials. This way the costs will be lower, and she will have a better profit margin.

Her dream is to continue working at her business in order to help her life companion cover the needs of the household. She also wants to teach her child to work.
