A loan of $550 helped to purchase clothing and footwear.

Ana Tisel's story

Ana is 26 years old. She is the mother and head of the family for two children ages six and ten. After being abandoned by her husband, she took over the obligations of managing the household in order to get her family ahead. With few opportunities for employment due to her lack of education, she opted to work as a merchandiser, which allows her to spend time with her family while also earning sufficient income to feed and educate her children.

Currently Ana has many customers who are constantly requesting clothing and footwear. She has not been able to fill all these orders due to the fact that she does not have sufficient funds to make the necessary purchases from her providers. For this reason she is requesting a loan with the goal of meeting customer demand and increasing her sales. Her greatest hope--beyond even securing financial stability--is being able to provide a better condition of living for her children.
