A loan of $1,075 helped to buy supplies, sodas, rice and sugar.

Ana Emilia's story

Ana, at 24 years old, has big aspirations. One of them is to be a micro-businesswoman. She lives in Duran where she has a general store. The idea emerged as her aspirations grew, and with it, the idea that she wants to have a better future for her family.

She does her work throughout the day until night time. At the interview it was observed that she does it in a pleasant and friendly way. She says that is the secret to her success, and because of that she has a lot of customers. She is married to Roberto who is a security guard. They have two children, ages 5 and 1. They are not in school yet, but next year they will attend.

She thanks God that her work benefits her well being. The loan will be used to buy supplies, sodas, rice, sugar, etc. In the future, she would like her store to be the biggest in the area with a dollar store to improve its profits.
