Ana Elizabeth B. R. is 48 years old and single. She works from her own home, which is located in the Department of San Salvador. Ana lives with her sister, who works as a degreed computer programmer, and her three year old niece.

Ana has her own store where she sells various products such as candy, bread, toilet paper, medicines, and different brands of detergents. Even though she has eight years of experience, most of her earnings go toward maintaining her household. She invests very little in her business, which is why she needs help improving it. For this reason, she is requesting a loan from Apoyo Integral so that she will have the money necessary to buy large quantities of products such as eggs, juices, milk, bread, and candies of different brands so that her customers will have a wider variety to choose from and want to buy more.

Ana is very dedicated to what she does, which is why she wants to grow her business and provide better service to her customers so that they will feel more comfortable in her store. By making these improvements, she hopes to improve her earnings.
