Ana's story

Ana is a 54-year-old married woman with five children. She runs a small canteen in her community to earn a living. She has three years of experience with this business. She is well known in her community due to her delicious food and good customer services. She works very hard to please her customers and gain more profits to help her family’s weekly expenses.

Ana needs a loan to buy sandwiches, pies, donuts, snacks, coffee, a large boiler, soft drinks, and a chest freezer. This will assist her in running the business.

She plans to use her profit to build a bakery store so that she can also provide services of catering food for special occasions such as weddings, funerals, birthdays, etc.

She has been a member of SPBD since 2009. Ana's dream is to one day have multiple canteens and more employees to help her run the business. She is very grateful for your support, and she is also encouraging more unemployed women to join the program and build a business to develop their families.


This loan is special because:

It provides women with credit in a country where alternative financing is extremely scarce.
