A loan of $250 helped to buy vegetables and make a down payment on a plot of land.

Ana Vilma's story

Ana's business is selling vegetables and seafood. She has been living in a rental house for nine years. Her children live with her. Ana's business offers everything people need in fresh vegetables and seafood. She has stayed in the market by offering good products. She has been in this business for eight years.

Ana is requesting a loan because she needs to invest in her business by purchasing merchandise (vegetables). She will also make a down payment on a plot of land that she is acquiring. This purchase will help her to have what she needs for her business and guarantee a plot of land where she hopes to live some day. Ana's aspiration is to be able, through her business and loans, to finish paying for her plot of land and have the opportunity to build her own home.
