Ana Maria
Ana, 35, lives with her 67-year-old mother and 93-year-old grandmother. Her mother helps her with the household chores and sometimes a little with the business too because the long work days are hard on her. Ana works selling French bread and various types of sweet bread from place to place in different neighborhoods. She works every afternoon and also sells from home earning a bit more money this way. Ana is asking Integral for a loan to have the money needed to buy a variety of sweet bread and larger amounts of French bread that’s consumed daily which makes the business profitable. Ana hopes to increase sales and be able to live better alongside her grandmother and her mother.
