A loan of $400 helped to buy rice, beans, sugar, oil, beef, and chicken.

Ana Julia's story

Ana, a businesswoman and mother of three kids, is a resident of the city of Estelí. She is owner of a small food stand, a business she started 22 years ago in her home. Nowadays she rents a location in the commercial part of the city where the affluence of clients is very steady. She sells lunch and breakfast and makes deliveries while receiving clients in her locale at the same time. This business has helped her to sustain a family and be able to dress them, give them an education, have money for medical expenses, and it is because of this that maintaining the quality of the business is very important for her. She depends on it to survive and to get ahead. She will use this loan to buy rice, beans, sugar, oil, beef, and chicken, as these are part of the ingredients she uses to make her plates and offer the menu for the day. She tells us that she has plans to put a local store in her home as well.
