A loan of $900 helped to buy aprons for resale.

Ana Mercedes's story

Ana Mercedes is 37 years old. She makes traditional aprons. She has been running this business for 20 years. It is located in her home, which is in a small town called El Manzanal Sajcavilla. Sometimes she travels to other areas, such as San Pedro Sacatepequez, to sell her products. Often her customers come to her house to purchase her goods. She has 3 minor children.

She needs another loan in order to buy more goods to have a stock of aprons of different colours and quality.

Her dream is to continue working, and so contribute to the household. She also wants to grow her business and hopes to be able to buy a screen printing machine for shorts and pants. With this loan she will buy different styles and designs of aprons for resale.
