A loan of $1,200 helped to buy soft drinks, chicken, basic grains, soap and detergent.

Ana Thelma's story

Ana lives with her two children who are already married. She manages a store and also is a farmer. She learned about having a store from a sister in law and decided to open her own business a year ago. Her customers are neighboring residents in the area who know her.

She is asking for a loan because she needs to invest in products to stock her store, buying soft drinks, snacks, basic grains, soap and detergents as well as propane gas, cream and cheese. This will help her fortify her business through the investment with the loan.

Her goal is keep growing and fortifying her business, building a safer locale to have her store in. This would give her better conditions to serve her customers and be preferred by them.
