Amistad 4 Group's story

Ana is the group coordinator for these five ladies. Ana is a single mother of three children. Her business consists of making hair products like shampoo, conditioner and anti-frizz serum as well as disinfectant for floors and home surfaces. Ana purchases chemical products from local distributors to make her products and packs them for distribution. Her finished products are sold in small grocery stores and in her own home. In addition, Ana is a dressmaker, sewing clothes and decorative pieces like curtains, bathroom sets and bedspreads.

Ana’s most important challenge is to see her children become professionals. God has given her the strength to work hard as a single mother, to provide for her family and to send her children to study. She enjoys sewing and making products. She learned her last one around six years ago and, after completing all her classes, she decided to invest and produce products for hair, body and other uses. She has received 15 loans with Esperanza and, with her first loan, she bought a sewing machine and started making student uniforms. With this loan, Ana will buy fabric to make bedspreads and bathroom set and chemical products (Sodium chloride, boric acid, menthol, methyl salicylate, glycerin, fruit fragrance, cetyl alcoohol, etc.) for hair and household products.

Ana's dream is to have a big factory to produce her chemical-based products and to sell them in other cities and in big department stores. She thanks you all for your support.
