Ana Elizabeth's story

Ana lives in Duran with her children. At 35 years old, she is a single mother since she separated from her children’s father. Ana is a manicurist, a job she has been doing for three years and it is going well. She tells us that she enjoys her work a great deal and that she took several courses to learn design and how to care for hands and feet. Ana does her work only when called by her customers. She also has a sign on her house which offers her services, however she notes that most of her work comes from the calls she receives. As a single mother she also earns income by selling clothing items, taking advantage of the visits she makes to clients: she not only gives them manicures but also sells clothes. Moreover, Ana says if someone just wants to buy hand care products from her, she will sell to them without any problem. With the loan she is requesting, she will buy nail polish, nail polish remover, cotton, exfoliators, creams and clothing so that she can provide a better service. Her next goal is to fix up her house. We wish you luck, Ana.
