Ana Gloria
Ana Gloria is 49 years old and lives in her own home that was built by her husband. She lives with her entire family, including her small granddaughter who is 3 years old. With the help of her family, she makes and sells a variety of sweets from her home. She decided to start this business because her husband's income was not covering the household expenses, which seemed to grow every day.

Her husband works in agriculture, but he does not earn a steady income because agriculture is seasonal work. For this reason, he does not have a reliable monthly income. Therefore, Ana works hard and is always thinking of ways to further help support her household.

She has the advantage of being very well-known in her region, and many people give her good personal and work references. All of this has enabled her to be successful in selling her delicious and fresh handmade sweets. She prepares them every day and then sells them.

She decided to seek a loan so that she can invest in the necessary ingredients for her sweets, such as milk, sugar, coconut, tamarind, papaya and milk. She trusts in God, this institution, and that with her work and dedication she will be able to reach her objective of improving the quality of life for her family.

Junto con la ayuda de su familia se dedica a la elaboración y venta de variedad de dulces los cuales los comercializa en el interior de su hogar. Decidió dedicarse a este negocio en vista que los ingresos percibidos por el trabajo de su esposo no logran cubrir los gastos de las principales necesidades de su hogar los cuales cada día son mayores. Su esposo se dedica a la agricultura razón por la cual no cuentan con una fuente de ingresos fija ya que la agricultura es por temporada por lo que no hay un ingreso seguro de manera mensual. Por todo lo anterior la señora Ana trabaja duramente ya que siempre está pensando en la forma de ayudar con la economía de su hogar. Cuenta con la ventaja de que es muy conocida en la zona y muchas personas dan buenas referencias de su trabajo y de su persona. Todo esto le ha permitido tener éxito en la venta de sus deliciosos y frescos dulces artesanales que cada día prepara y pone a la venta.
