Ana Lisseth's story

Ana is requesting a loan because she needs operating capital to reinvest into her business. In addition, her previous investment yielded good results. She will use the borrowed funds to buy flour, bread, corn, pork skins, soft cheese, and other supplies for preparing and selling pupusas and hamburgers.

With her previous loan, Ana was able to boost her food sales. She was able to buy the supplies that she needed for her business in bulk and at a lower cost, which helped to improve her sales and income. Ana also began selling her products through home deliveries, which satisfied her customers. She used the profits from her business to meet her family and financial obligations. Ana is still a single mother and her immediately family has not changed. However, they are experiencing a more decent way of life.
