Ana's story

Ana, age 31, and her husband work from 6:30 am to 10:00 pm. She tells us that she started and learned the business with her parents. Living in a hard-to-access zone makes her afraid of being a victim of crime, although she says that that is always something for which one should be on guard.

She tells us that when her 2 children arrive home from school, they help her to tend to her customers. This is, of course, after they do their daily homework. In order to stock her store, her priority for the near future is to purchase a vehicle. For this reason she wants to take out a loan to purchase rice, oil, salt and general supplies, with which she will gain the necessary money and achieve her goal.
