Ana Marizela's story

Ana Marizela is 31 years old and lives in her own home with her three children who are studying. Because her family's financial situation was getting more difficult and there were no opportunities to support the family, Sra. Ana's husband decided to leave for the United States in order to provide for them and help the children with their education. While he works abroad, Ana started a business that consists of selling products through catalogs. Thanks to this business and the remittances sent by her husband, her family is able to get ahead.


Ana sells by traveling to different areas of the town where she lives. She is a responsible, hardworking, and dynamic woman who knows how to gain the trust of many people who demand more of her products each day. Her customers have confidence in her and in the products she distributes. Being a visionary woman, Ana wants to continue contributing toward the household finances. Therefore, she has made the decision to invest in the purchase of catalog products in bulk such as crèmes, lotions, dyes, shampoo, deodorants, makeup, and other items. This will provide a boost to her business so that she can generate a better profit and contribute more to the household finances. She is requesting a loan from Apoyo Integral since she has no other means of making this investment. Ana is confident of attaining positive results.
