Ana Maria's story

Ana María A. Martínez is 57, married, and raising three children. She is a seamstress. Her business is located in her house. Ana had difficulties. Because her house is very far, she lost many customers. She has been in this business for over eight years. It has been difficult to keep her business going, and she has made many sacrifices to feed her children every day. The loan will be used to buy raw materials to make her dresses, suits, and pants. Ana’s dream is that her clothing will be exported to foreign countries so that they will become known.
