Ana Patricia
View original language description ↓

Ms. Ana Patricia, single mother of three, had a job that didn’t bring her much income in order to care for her children, so she began selling food among her neighbors in order to better provide for her children and in this way, little by little, she began her own food business and increased her income. She also took advantage of this opportunity to sell seasonal clothing to her clients. Thanks to this activity she has been able to pay for her children to attend school.

However, Ana Patricia continues to struggle in order to move her children ahead and it is for this reason that she is asking for a loan of $300 dollars to be reimbursed in a 6 month period. With this money Ana will be able to buy a stove and other items in order to offer items sold during a local holiday called “The Day of the Dead” for her clients. With your help, Ana Patricia will be able to have materials to sell and in turn pay for her children’s expenses.
