A loan of $1,500 helps to buy potato, lettuce, tomato, onion, and melon.


Ana Ruth's story

In the early hours of the morning, Ana, age 43, heads to the market to sell cassava, lettuce, tomato, onion, "chiltoma", melon, broccoli, and watermelon, to obtain income to improve her family's living conditions. She has 12 seasons' experience in her valuable economic activity, and she has the unconditional support of her husband. She is a mother who is motivated by her love for her five children.

Ana has "knocked on the doors" of MiCrédito and Kiva, trusting that she will obtain a loan to buy potato, lettuce, tomato, onion, and melon. In the near future, Ana has the great challenge a of finding new openings in the markets of her country.
