Ana Bertha
Ana is 32 years old. She lives in the city of Guadalupe, a city that is located in the north of the country, where agriculture takes place, especially the cultivation of rice, bananas, lemons, and others. Also, the people are very friendly and generous.

Rosa is a hardworking woman with a lot of desire to get ahead. When she has free time she likes to watch television and sometimes she likes to eat one of her favorite dishes, the tasty “Tallarin con papa a la huancaína” [spaghetti and sliced, boiled potatoes in a cheese sauce, with the spaghetti often served with a green sauce containing spinach and basil].

Through her efforts and savings Ana was able to open a business of selling groceries. She works around ten hours a day and can assist up to fifteen clients a day. She believes that her business is going well because she is very friendly with the customers and above all she offers quality products at a good price and also because she is well known in her neighborhood.

Ana is very grateful for the Kiva loans because thanks to the help they have provided she could buy merchandise for her store, in particular to buy rice, sugar, noodles, canned goods, and other items, which allows her to have a variety of products and to move towards attaining her biggest dream: to have a facility where she can sell clothing.
