A loan of $500 helped to buy chicken, rice, soft-drinks and meats.


Ana Cecilia's story

Ana works selling food and soft-drinks. She’s a single mother of a 16-year-old daughter; she does not have any relatives abroad. She’s been in the food business for 13 years. She started it on her own initiative and works every day from 6am until 6pm. Her advantage is that she has no nearby competition. She’s asking for a loan to buy kitchen supplies to continue in business. She will buy chicken, rice, soft-drink and meats, among other products for food sales. This will help her strengthen the business giving it more production capacity. Her hope is to grow in business and to open a store to have more sources of income; she also wants to support her daughter’s further schooling.
