Ana Lila's story

Ana Lila R. M. is 49 years old and lives in the municipality of Soyapango, one of the most important cities in the department of San Salvador. She lives with her husband, who works as a bricklayer, and his mother and a daughter. Ana has a business selling clothing for men and women, which is located in the center of San Salvador. This is one of the best sites for trade, since many people pass through this place. She requests a loan to buy a larger quantity of clothing, in various colors, styles and sizes, so that she can offer better quality garments to her customers. For Ana it is very important to have better earnings since this will allow her to help her husband cover the household expenses. Ana has the advantage of having daily earnings, which is different from her husband, who must knock on doors to get some work, and for this reason she wants to improve her clothing business.
