A loan of $500 helped to build a shelter outside her house to sell her food outdoors.

Ana Patricia's story

Ana is 50 years old and she is married. She has been selling food for 10 years with the help of her daughter. She buys the supplies to elaborate her delicious food at the municipal market of her town and from other stores. She uses the profit from the previous day to invest in the following day's supplies.
She is asking for a loan from the field partner, Fundacion Campo, in order to build a shelter outside her house so she can sell her food there. The sun shines directly on her house, so Ana can only sell food to take away. She wants to have a place where customers can eat their food, because some of them would like to eat there but they can't due to the inadequacy of Ana's selling space. With this investment, Ana will improve her business. She will be able to take care of more customers, grow her business and have more people working for her.
