Ana Raquel's story

Ana is 36 years old and originally from the Canoas region in the outskirts of Teustepe. She is married and has three children who are 3, 6, and 13 years old. She works as a retailer. She has a mill and she also rents plastic tables and chairs. She started working very young at a business and saved money little by little. From there, she decided to start her own business providing mill services. She also rents tables and chairs. She has received loans from the institution and also counts on the support of her husband and her daughter, who runs the mill business. She also receives income from relatives who live abroad. Ana is requesting this loan to purchase tables and chairs. She says that this loan will help her to purchase everything she needs for her business and allow her to provide better service to her customers. She hopes to increase her income to repay the loan and later return to request another. One of her goals is to improve the infrastructure of her house.
