A loan of $625 helped to stock her grocery business.

Ana Maricruz's story

Ana Maricruz, 52, lives in a rented house with her husband and son. She owns a store where she sells the kind of merchandise that her customers need every day: beans, bread, eggs, drinks, soap, etc. She operates the business from a space in her house and is well known in the neighborhood. There are only a few other similar businesses nearby, something that's an advantage for her. She says, too, that her customers come to her because she provides good-quality products at reasonable prices. Ana is a hard-working woman, always ready to make the most of whatever opportunities come her way, and that's why she's successful. She wants to grow the business, but she lacks the capital she needs to buy a wider range of products. Ana is responsible and has good references. She knows that she can repay the loan and still give her family a better quality of life.
