Ana Julia's story

Ana Julia is 50 years old, married, and has four children. She lives with two of her children in a small village near the city of Puerto Cortes. Ana Julia has always worked in sales, and she used to sell all kinds of merchandise. Six years ago, she decided to start selling food because it is profitable. She built a small addition to her home, from which she sells soft drinks, candy and meals such as fried chicken with plantains, fried chops, tacos and others.

Ana Julia has requested various loans in the past, which have allowed her business to keep growing. She has managed to maintain a very good credit history with the field partner and this motivates her to continue working.

This is Ana Julia’s eighth loan cycle. She will use the loan of 25000 HNL to buy ingredients for the meals she sells, such as flour, meat, beans, soft drinks, dairy products, lard, condiments and others. Her goal is to continue working to satisfy her customers and to support her family.
