Ana Vilma's story

Ana Vilma is 49 and lives in her own home with her family, which is made up of her husband and 4 children. Her husband and one of her sons make a living through brick laying. Her other children are in school. They want to better themselves and become professionals. Her oldest son helps Ana with her bakery business that is located in her home. This is how she manages to provide the daily bread for her home given that apart from her husband's income and the income she makes from her business, she doesn't have another source of income. This is why she works hard to be able to give her family economic stability and to help with what is possible with her children's education. She is very well-known in the area as a hard-working, responsible, and honorable person. Thanks to her charisma and good service, she has been able to establish some fixed customers who prefer her more every day. Her wish is to be able to maintain her business for a long time to continue contributing to her family's income. This is why she is requesting this loan since she wants to invest in basic supplies like: flour, sugar, yeast, oil, food coloring, and other necessary items to make her delicious bread. With this decision, she hopes to be able to accomplish her goal of having a larger supply, which will let her strengthen her bakery and support her home. She expresses that she is very grateful with the institution since in the past they helped her when she requested a loan. She hopes that this time will not be an exception.
