Ana Maria's story

Ana Maria is 62 years old and divorced. She has a daughter that is financially dependent on her and is currently finishing her education. Ana has a small business where she sells snacks, canned goods, soft drinks, sweets, bread, detergent, etc. This business is her only source of income for her and her daughter. It covers their basic necessities such as food, clothing, a roof over their heads, and education so they can have a better quality of life.

Señora Ana's daughter needs her own space since the business is located in their house. She wants her mother to build a room for her so she can have privacy. Ana wants to make her dream a reality and for this reason, she is requesting a loan to start the construction of her daughter's bedroom. For this she needs to buy cement, sand, and rods, and to pay a mason.
