A loan of $800 helped to buy cured meats at wholesale.


Ana Mercedes's story

Ana, 33, lives with her husband and two children who are 15 and 10 years of age and attending school at the moment. Ana sells cured meats (mortadella, ham and sausages) with her husband’s help; she sells to various stores and businesses in her place of residence and uses profits earned to help cover some of her household expenses.

Ana’s asking INTEGRAL for a loan to be able to buy cured meats at wholesale to stay in business since this is her only source of work to be able to give her family better economic stability.
