A loan of $1,200 helped to buy rice, cooking oil and onions.


Ana Luisa's story

Ana, 48, is a small-businesswoman who has a post where she sells food. She started in the food business a number of years ago when she used to sell a typical Ecuadorean dish called "encebollado" (fish stew with onions.)

Gradually, with a lot of effort, she was able to buy chairs and tables for her small food post. Now she has a post in Guasmo, selling typical Ecuadorean dishes such as chicken and rice, rice stew, etc.

With this loan she wants to buy bananas, rice and cooking oil to make more food to sell. In the future, she wants to make contacts with local businesses so she can sell lunches to the employees by order.
