Ana's story

49 year old Ana is a very enterprising woman. She forged her family of 6 children, of which only 2 live with her in her home. She separated from her husband some time ago. Since then, she has carried the family responsibilities. This helped to turn her into and independent woman. So it was that, at that time (15 years ago) she opened a tourist restaurant in the central area of her town. There she offers all types of food to professors, bank workers, lawyers, and doctors who are located in Pampas for work. She serves at least 30 people a day and she has regular customers. Her secret is that she prepares her dishes with vegetables that she grows herself as Anita also has some agricultural land where she works with another woman. However, most of her time is spent at the restaurant where she works very hard along with her daughters in order to be successful. This is her 8th loan from MFP. In this time, she has shown herself to be punctual and responsible and is well liked in her group "The Petals" which is comprised of united and entrepreneurially-spirited people.
Ana will use the loan she is requesting to buy supplies to prepare the delicious dishes that she sells.
