A loan of $125 helped to purchase soda, bags, pineapple, orange, melon, straws, etc.

Ana Rosa's story

Ana is 57 years old, an inhabitant of the city of Granada, married, and the mother of two children of 13 and 18 years of age. She is a shop-keeper by trade and she makes a living by selling sodas and juices. She has been the owner of this business for more than a year.

She started in the world of business at a very young age, working in sewing since she needed a means of subsistence for her and her children, but with time she decided to leave sewing because it did not generate a lot of profit. For this reason she now sells only sodas and natural juices, which gives her daily profits. She relies on the help of her daughters and her husband. She sells her products from home since it is an area many people pass through.

Her hope is to continue growing her business. Ana needs the financing in order to buy soda, bags, pineapple, orange, melon, straws, etc. She thinks that this loan will help her to buy all the raw material she needs to make her delicious natural fruit juices, with the objective of increasing her sales and obtaining better revenue. In her future plans is to be able to expand her business with more products for sale.
