A loan helped to buy and sell construction materials.

Ana's story

Ana is 48 and is in a common-law marriage. She is a businesswoman. She is the mother of 6 children: 3 adults and 3 minors. She owns her home.

This is her third loan, and it is for buying a variety of products, such as windows, electric cables, toilets, wires, nails, boots, buckets, and other hardware items, to resell at her hardware store. Her previous loans were applied to the same business.

Her biggest dream is to be a successful entrepreneur.
