Ana is a hard-working person that always gives her best. When she was very young she got pregnant and she married at 18 years of age. She now has two children, Rafael and Josefina. The oldest is 1 year old and her daughter is 3 months old. 10 years ago Ana lost her parents and moved into the home of her godparents. They helped her until she was married. She now lives with her family in the poorest neighborhood in the city of Cochabamba. It is located in the southern region of Cochabamba in a neighborhood called San Miguel. She doesn't have any basic services in her home.

Ana sells construction supplies. Her specialty is selling reinforced slabs. She sells mostly plastoforms and joists but she needs more money to buy a mixer and a hoist. This equipment will help her sell more materials because it is common and expected that when these construction materials are purchased, the buyers can borrow a hoist and mixer.
