Ana is 25 years old. She is from Cabawan District, Tagbilaran City. She is married with two young sons, ages 4 and 6.
Ana sells vegetables in the city proper in order to generate an income for her family. She also raises chickens for additional revenue.
Ana is asking for a loan of 13,000 Philippines pesos (PHP) to buy vegetables like eggplant, squash, string beans, bamboo shoots and bitter gourd. She works hard so that she can provide for her children's needs. The loan means a lot to her.
In the future, she hopes to have a better location in the city where she can display her vegetables for better sales.
