A loan of $1,075 helped to buy rice, sugar, oil, grains, and canned food.


Ana Lucia's story

Ana began her sale of groceries out of the need to be useful in her life and independent, with the goal of giving her son better living conditions and teaching him responsibility. The business is located in the living room of her house in Quevedo, since this way she can care for her son, who is a few months old. Her husband helped her with the capital since he is a policeman, and on seeing her eagerness to help him, he supported her. She works alone, and at times her mother helps her. In her store she sells products of daily use such as rice, sugar, oil, grains, canned food, etc. She is obtaining good earnings. She will use the loan that she is applying for to buy merchandise to sell, hoping to increase her sales, since her dream is to remain with her family and grow her business.
