A loan of $1,050 helped to buy perfumes and lipsticks.


Ana Maria's story

Ana is 40. She started selling Yambal products, as she is on her own, and this is a way for her and her children to get ahead in life. She works on her own every day, without set hours, visiting the homes of friends and family members. Crime is the greatest problem that arises in her work. She is a single mother who works very hard to move forward with her two children, ages eleven and nine, who go to high school. She wants to continue with her business, and that's why she wants the loan to buy perfumes, and cosmetics. Her goal is to be able to keep her business going, so that she can move up in her work, have an office, and her own car.
