A loan of $700 helped to pay back another loan and buy goods for her cafe. The holiday week is coming and she wants to buy bread, chicken, oil and vinegar bottles and disposable plates.

Ana Del Carmen's story

Ana, 32, is single. She lives with her mother and sister, who watches out for Ana because of her hearing impairment. She works in a cafe in the central park of the city, selling pupusas (stuffed tortillas), banana snacks and beverages.

For four years she has been working at the cafe and started out by helping her sister. Since her sister saw that Ana worked well, she left her the business and established another one. So both of them have their own businesses.

The loan she is requesting through Fundación Campo is to pay off another loan and to buy goods for the cafe for the upcoming holiday week. She will buy bread, chicken, two oil and vinegar bottles, and disposable plates. Without the loan she would not be able to buy more supplies for her business because she has just enough to cover household expenses. Her goal is to buy a grill to make and sell pupusas.
