Ana Judith's story

Ana, 38, lives with her husband and their two children, ages 10 and 16. Due to a lack of employment opportunities and the difficult economic situation the family was in, she decided to look for ways to generate her own income. A year and a half ago she started her own business and set up a store at home. She sells family basket items such as cookies, eggs, coffee, sugar, bread, etc. The work has given her enough money to support her husband in taking care of household expenses.

The advantage of the business is that the store is located in a residential area where the purchase of daily consumption items is very common. Ana is requesting a loan to buy a variety of wholesale products (coffee, pasta, grains, sugar, sauces, cookies, personal care and others). She also wants to renovate the store (painting and electrical wiring) to give it a better appearance and offer more product variety to satisfy customer preference and needs. This will help increase sales income.

Ana wants to grow her business and keep it well-stocked so that in the medium term she can turn it into a well-known supermarket. This will give her more economic stability to improve the family's living conditions.
