Ana Cecilia's story

Ana Cecilia, 38, is a single mother of three minor children. This woman is responsible for her children and her mother because her father died and her husband abandoned her. When she became unemployed she needed to earn income to solve the economic need she was facing. She decided to open a home-based grocery store that had very little stock merchandise because of the little capital she had available to invest in it. And as if this weren’t enough, the health department is requiring her to replace her kitchen sink and the bathroom at home which is why she’s asking for a loan to do the adjustments they require because if she does not do them they will shut her business down. Ana is very worried because her store is her only source of income and her children are in school and her mother needs medicine that she must provide and for all these reasons she cannot be left without income.
