Ana Luz
Doña Ana is 53 years old. She lives in her own house with her three children. She is a responsible woman and one whose principal priority is raising her children. She has a tortilla stand, where she is in charge of making tortillas every noon and every evening. Her business is located in her home. Doña Ana wants very much to improve her business, since it offers very stable earnings, which allow her to support her family. This is why she is applying for a loan, with which she will be able to buy wholesale corn and lime in order to make a greater quantity of tortillas, especially on the weekends, when the demand increases due to the fact that many other tortillas shops are closed, and thus she can obtain better earnings, which allow her to improve her economic stability.
