Ana Gloria's story

Ana Gloria H. D. L. C., 38, lives in a rented house with her life partner. She sells esoteric items (colored candles, scented candles, candle holders, incense, scents and various natural health products). Thanks to her dedication and long work she’s managed to establish two stands of this type of product in the Cojutepeque market, Cuscatlán Department, a place with lots of foot traffic, especially at Ana’s stands which she opens very early with a smile and lots of enthusiasm but, above all, with trust in God that her efforts will be worth it and some day she will manage to improve her and her family’s living conditions. Thanks to the kindness with which she does her work, people in the area prefer her each day and she’s noted that her products sell with ease.

She is requesting this loan to continue stocking her business to offer her customers a larger variety of products so that they will continue to seek her out as they’ve done to date. She will use the loan to buy a larger amount and variety of candles, incense and natural health products, various scents, among others. She hopes thus to obtain higher income for her family’s support.
