Ana's story

Ana belongs to the "Mujer Bellavistana" loan group of the Bellavista district in the San Martín department. She is 46 years old, lives with her partner, and has five children, three of whom are dependent upon her.

With the goal of contributing to the family income, she had the idea of opening a small catering business. Little by little she gained experience, becoming well-known and loved by her customers. She continues this business, personally serving customers who visit her restaurant daily with the flavor and kindness that is characteristic of Ana.

With this loan of 2500 soles ($850), Ana will buy sacks of rice and sugar, various vegetables, eggs and poultry. She will also purchase cooking utensils to replace the one she has now in order to provide better service and attention to her clients.

Anita feels very confident with the aim to move forward and ensure a peaceful life for herself. She thanks the Movimiento Manuela Ramos for contributing to the success of her goals and dreams.
