Ana Lucia's story

When talking about the business of selling preserved fruits and vegetables, a big smile appears on Ana Lucia's face. She is a very enterprising woman, who proudly tells how her business has grown since she got her first loan. With it she bought containers and chile in order to increase her sales. She was very successful, and she mentions how grateful she is to those people who helped her with the first loan, which helped her raise her sales and become more industrialized. Now, Ana is 36 years old and feels that her business is on the right path. Therefore, she is requesting a new loan to buy an 80 liter stainless steel pot and labels for her products. This will allow her to improve her production, meet health required norms and increase her products. Fortunately, she has a tight family who supports her in what is needed. When she finishes paying off the loan, she plans to buy a mill so that her business keeps growing.
