Ana Maria's story

Ana is 58 years old and lives in Guayaquil. She opened this store because she wanted to spend more time at home with her children. Ana wanted to earn more income and gradually increased her business until she was able to acquire her own store.

She and her husband work from 6:00 A.M. to 9:00 P.M. Her main concern throughout her entire life is dealing with her own illnesses and those of her children. Ana is married and her husband is a chauffeur. They have two grown children who are the reason behind her efforts to move forward.

With this loan, Ana will buy sodas, food products, and snacks for her store. Her dream is to use this loan to increase her business even more so that she will have more income.
