Ana Mariela's story

Ana has sold food for four years, a business she inherited from her parents who are senior citizens and no longer work in their business. She sells at night in one of Cochabamba’s busiest streets and studies during the day. Her work is very demanding but she uses her profits to pay for her schooling and food and also to help her parents with household expenses. She rises very early in the morning to prepare the food and then go to class. She needs the loan to replace her utensils and increase inventory with respect to supplies. The house belongs to her parents. Ana is a very kind young woman who strives to have a better future.
