Ana Julia's story

Ana Julia O. is 48 years old and lives in the city of Soyapango, in the area of San Salvador. She lives with her four children, the oldest of whom works to help his mother with the expenses of the home. The younger three children study and, in the afternoon, help Ana with the housework. Ana has a store selling basic products, and this business has allowed her to get ahead, along with her four children. Ana is asking for a loan to be able to stock her store. Despite having run the store for many years, she still has not stocked it with everything her customers request, which causes her business to suffer when compared to the competition. It is very important to Ana to improve her business, as this is her means of obtaining the money to support her family. They are entirely dependent upon her and upon the small amount that her oldest son contributes by working very hard.
