A loan of $475 helped invest in meats and other foods for her market.


Ana's story

Ana has a small store she has owned for over 5 years. She sells a little bit of everything. Prior to opening her store she used to work with her late husband selling seafood. They worked together for about 8 years until one night he was killed in a robbery attempt. Although this was very tough for Ana, she had to continue to make income to support her 3 kids. She worked selling various items door-to-door until a family member from Spain gave her a $1000 loan to get her store up and running. She now needs to continue investing in her store in order to make her business successful. She plans on investing in beef, poultry, eggs and other foods to sell from her store.
