A loan of $525 helped to buy a photocopier.

Ana Lucía's story

All you need to get ahead is will power. Motivation, self-discipline and dedication are what 22 year old Ana Lucía never runs out of; she keeps fighting for her future. With the help of her mother, she has managed to set-up a corner shop, selling fax, scanning and photocopying services. The financial situation that her family is facing is her biggest driver. Most important for Ana Lucía is her mother - she will never stop fighting to see her smile. She says that her disability does not stop her but rather it motivates her to do things better. She is currently seeking a loan to buy a photocopier, in order to improve her level of service and to generate a higher income.
