A loan of $750 helped to buy wood stakes and plywood sheets.

Ana's story

Ana, 28, is a cheerful, hardworking woman. She lives in her own house with her beloved, 7-year-old daughter, Mayli. What she most desires is to provide her with a better quality of life and is willing to work very hard to do so. Ana, at her young age, is both father and mother to her daughter. In face of her partner’s absence, she tries to get ahead and give the best of herself so that her beloved daughter will want for naught.

Every day, very early, she goes out to work in the green fields. For her, there are no days off because she must work continually in her field in order to have a good harvest. The main things she grows are: cocoa beans, coffee and bananas which, once harvested, she takes to sell in various markets in the city of San Francisco. What she most likes about her work is the freedom she has working her fields because she can freely enjoy the green countryside. She’s been in this line of work for 7 years and considers the most difficult part of it having to work during the heavy rainy season because rains in this part of the Peruvian Amazon region are continuous. For the future and for her better wellbeing, she plans to buy new land to increase her production.

This is Ana’s fourth loan and she’s very happy to know that once again she’ll be able to count on your support to continue making progress. She is a very participative member of her communal bank. She will use the requested amount to buy wooden stakes and plywood sheets to build a temporary shelter in her field that will serve as refuge during the rainy season.
