Ana Mercedes's story

Ana Mercedes H. D. H. is 47 years old and lives in Apopa, located in the region of San Salvador. Her family includes her husband, who works as a police officer in the National Civil Police. This job is quite risky, but very necessary for their household.

Ana Mercedes owns a fruit and vegetable stand in the municipal market in Soyapango in which she sells her products by unit and wholesale. She has many customers, including people who sell prepared food in the same market. They buy from Ana Mercedes because she sells her vegetables at very good prices. Ana Mercedes is asking for a loan in order to buy a larger quantity of fruits and vegetables at wholesale prices, so she can buy them for lower prices and then sell them more affordably. This is very important to her since it will allow her to earn more money, which will benefit her family.
