Ana Basilia's story

Ana Basilia is responsible for the education of her five school-age children. She established her wood handicrafts business in Chinandega's central market 25 years ago. Since she started her business, she has been known as a hardworking, enterprising woman as she began with little merchandise; however, with great effort, she has prospered and provided for her family.

One of the challenges she faces is buying merchandise for her business: general handicrafts, jewelry, and wood blocks. Therefore, she came to Ceprodel seeking funding that would allow her to buy merchandise and maintain the income with which she supports her family and educates her children. It's worth noting that since she started working with Ceprodel 6 years ago, her business has grown substantially, her quality of life has improved, and this is her 43rd loan cycle.
