Ana Amparo's story

56-year old Ana lives in her own house. She has a 30-year old son but he does not live with her. Ana runs a store selling household products that she inherited from her mother. She works every day from 6 am to 7 pm. All her income comes from the store so she is looking for ways to keep it well-stocked.

Ana is seeking a loan to buy eggs, rice, beans, soft drinks, bread, juice, and snacks which will enable her to fully stock her store with all the items that her customers ask for. The loan will provide her with working capital so she can continue to make many sales and earn a good income.

Her objective is to keep her store running well and do whatever is necessary to continue working.
