Ana Maris's story

Ana, 45, is mother of two children and head of household since separating from her husband some years ago. During her productive life she’s been employed in a variety of firms. Her latest job was in a mobile phone company but in order watch over her children more carefully she decided to retire from it and open her own business, an Internet café she set up in a locale where it operated for a time. Later on she had to close it for reasons beyond her control

Now, she’s purchased her own house and wants to start again independently so wants to set up her Internet café again since she has available space and won’t have to pay rent. This motivates her to request a loan because she needs to buy computers, tables, chairs, printers and also needs to finish doing the physical modifications to the site to start her productive project from which she hopes to get good results while at the same time being able to do her household chores.

Ana’s a driven, active, enterprising woman. Her self-improvement spirit push her to get ahead always. Motivated by her children she rises daily to continue to strive to give them better well-being. She dreams in future to open several branches of her Internet café alternating it with a shoe and clothing store. But she’s well-aware that to accomplish this she must work hard with dedication and focus for only this way will she be able to improve her immediate family’s quality of life.
