Ana Lonny's story

Ana, age 39, is single and has a 12 year old son. Her business is making girls’ clothes. She is a good mother. She is enterprising, independent, tenacious, responsible, and hard-working. She conducts her business in the area south of the city. It is a place that is known for its informal commerce and independent manufacturing. It has a warm, tropical, and humid climate with a temperature that varies between 21º and 35º degrees centigrade during the day and throughout the year. Ana has a golden-brown complexion with long brown hair that is tied back. Her mother tongue is Guaraní, and she speaks Spanish for her business. She shares her life with her son who goes to school. They live in a family house that has potable water and electricity. Her business is making children’s clothes for girls. She makes things like dresses, skirts, and pants with elastic, etc. “Nothing is easier than making clothes for children until they are more or less ten years old. After this age the girl’s body starts to change and they need pleats or decorations to make the garments and to make alterations or to fit it to the body,” she says. Her dream is to have her own house. She wishes to buy fabric, thread, and other work materials wholesale in order to supply her customers for the end of the year. This is her first loan cycle with the institution. She has been engaged in this business activity for three years. It is for these reasons that Ana is requesting a loan to buy fabric wholesale in order to supply her customers at the end of the year.
