A loan of $1,575 helped to purchase materials for her handcrafts.

Ana Maritza's story

Ana is 52 years of age, married and has two children who are grown and do not live with her because they are independent. Her husband emigrated to the United States to look for work and that was when Ana went to work selling soy milk as a street vendor. She has always enjoyed commerce and so now she earns a living creating decorative items for the home. These are handcrafted items that she makes. She works every day from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m. and sells her work on the weekends.

With the loan she will purchase materials for her handcrafted items. Her aspirations for the future are to travel to the United States to be with her husband and open her own business once she gets there.
