Ana María's story

Sra. Ana María is a widow. Her husband died five years ago in a traffic accident, thus leaving her with their one daughter. Life has been difficult for Ana María since she must practically raise her daughter Mariela, who is now seven years old, by herself.

Ana María currently works at a company that sells dairy products. She is admired by her superiors because she is a persevering and determined woman. In addition, she has her own business of selling mints, candies, and gifts. She engages in this activity in the evenings from the doorstep of a shop. Ana María lives 60 minutes away from the city in one of the poorest neighborhoods of Cochabamba. She does not own a home and currently lives with one of her friends.

Her daughter recently became ill, so she had to use the money from her operating capital in order to pay for her care. This is the reason why she is requesting this current loan.
