A loan of $700 helped to buy corn and propane gas.

Ana Alicia's story

Ana Alicia A. D. S., 47 years of age, lives in the department of Usulután with her husband and two school-aged children. For the past 8 years, Ana has had a business making and selling tortillas. Her business was born from a desire to help her family financially, given that oftentimes they did not have enough income to cover household expenses. For this reason, Ana wishes to continue growing the business, an endeavor that has helped stabilize the family economically. Ana requests a loan in order to buy corn at wholesale, as this would allow her to obtain it at a better price. In addition, she would like to buy some propane gas tanks to have in reserve. At times, propane is scarce, and having some additional tanks would keep her business from being affected when there are fuel shortages. This problem has affected her in the past. These items would be a great help to her, as she would be able to improve her business and attract more customers.
