Ana Maria's story

Ana Maria began a grocery store in order to generate the income that she needed in order to care for her three children. She is a single mother, head of her household, and the father of her children does not help with their care. With the business she has been able to overcome great difficulties, the challenges that life has presented her. However, she continues having great economic difficulties that do not allow her to offer her three children a better quality of life. It is for this reason that Ana Maria is asking for a loan in order to buy snacks, sweets, soft drinks and other products in order to supply her business and increase her sales.

Her dream is to grow her business and increase the variety of products that she sells so that one day she will have a general store with products for the entire family. In addition, she hopes that her children will have better opportunities to progress in the future.
