A loan helped to purchase a stove.

Ana's story

Ana is a hard-working, single, woman with desire to improve herself. She has worked making and selling desserts for approximately eight years. Her daughters are who help her in the business.

She will use the loan to purchase a stove with an oven and ingredients such as sugar, eggs, and cinnamon, to continue making her desserts to sell. Her goal is to expand her business and get ahead with her family.
