Although Ana only has an elementary school education this has not been an impediment to the good administration of her businesses. Proof of this is that she has been attending to and administering her pupusa shop and selling wooden crates for 10 years. Ana's husband works outsiD. of the home. He works as an automobile mechanic where he gets daily wages of $12, which is the money that the family uses for the household expenses. Ana is requesting a loan to buy materials used to make pupusas such as beans, oil, and corn and to diversify her inventory of wooden crates.
