The business was started by her grandmother but when she died Ana took over; it’s currently located in Jucuapa’s municipal market. Her usual business hours are from 7am to 5pm and her customers are friends and visitors to the area. Ana is a good entrepreneur that has managed to succeed in her business through her efforts. She is asking for funds to buy assorted plastic containers like: jugs, barrels, pots, eating utensils, drinking glasses, dishes and other plastic utensils in order to have a wide variety of items available for her customers because they ask for them and she doensn’t stock them; she also wants to invest in clothing.

Her aspirations are to improve her business and stock it with the various articles her customers are asking for that lack of funds has prevented her from doing to date. She is optimistic that the investment in her business will improve her family’s quality of life and cover such expeses as food, health and housing.
