A loan of $1,100 helped to buy a display cabinet.


Anaiz's story

Anaiz is 56 years old. She is mother to seven children and head of the household. She worked as a photographer in the department of Caquetá, Columbia for 18 years, but due to natural disasters in this region she was forced to move. She lost her house and her business, which was her only source of income. In the wake of this situation, she settled in the city of Medellín, where she began to sell fried foods and tamales to help her family survive. Presently she makes a living selling products by catalogue, which is more convenient for her present state of health. With the aim of improving her economic condition and ensuring her children receive a better quality of life and education, Anaiz is requesting a loan with which she will buy a display cabinet where she will display her products.
