Ana Del Carmen
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.

Ana tiene 32 años de edad, esta soltera. Ella vive junto a su madre y su hermana; Ana no escucha muy bien y su hermana es la que esta pendiente de ella. Trabaja en un cafetín en el parque central de la ciudad, vende pupusas, tostadas de plátano y bebidas.

Desde hace unos cuatro años que esta trabajando en el cafetín, comenzó ayudándole a su hermana y como vio que ella trabajaba bien le dejo el negocio y ella estableció otro; es decir que las dos tienen negocio propio.

El préstamo que esta solicitando a Fundación Campo, es para cancelar una deuda con otra institución y para comprar más mercadería para el cafetín ya que se aproxima la semana de vacación, comprara panes con pollo, dos vinagreras, platos descartables. Sin el préstamo, no podría comprar más insumos para el negocio, ya que sale ajustada con los gastos del hogar. Lo que desea hacer es comprar una plancha para elaborar y vender pupusas.
