Ana Isabel's story

Ana Isabel is a female client who is 55 years of age. She lives with her husband, their two children, and her mother who is an elderly woman in need of care. Doña Ana is a hardworking and responsible woman who has great plans for her life and for her family. She has a bazaar in her home and enjoys succeeding after taking a computer literacy course. This is the second time she is requesting a loan from Fundación Mujer since she successfully repaid her first loan.

Since she has a bazaar as her business, Ana used her previous loan to invest in merchandise for the December holiday season. Now she needs operating capital since these next few months are very good for her business. Therefore, she plans to restock her merchandise. Her bazaar is located on the corridor of her house. She also has a storage shed. Ana’s business is the only bazaar in the area and it is very roomy, comfortable, and organized. Her main customers are the workers at a company called Yamber. In addition, she sells through catalogs to generate income.

Ana also takes care of her mother and the medicines are very expensive. Her mother is an elderly person, so her young children also help with managing the business while she administers the medicines to her mother.
