A loan of $200 helped to buy her son's graduation suit, as he is about to graduate from school and she does not have the money for this expense.


Ana Rubidia's story

Ana, 41 years old, is married but her husband emigrated to the United States in order to be able to provide their children with a better quality of life. Their children, 5, 18, and 20 years old, live with Ana in El Salvador. Her oldest child is about to graduate from school.

Ana works in a mini-store in her home that she has had for about 15 years. She also works a small mill that she acquired 11 years ago, which was very expensive. Her 20 year old son is responsible for cultivating basic grains, and her other children help with daily sales. Ana performs these activities in order to improve her income and provide a better quality of life for her children.

The loan that Ana is asking for is to buy a graduation suit for her son, as he is about to graduate from school and she does not currently have the money for this expense.

Ana's dream is to see her children obtain university degrees, so they can one day support themselves. Additionally, she would like to make repairs to her house, so that her future grandchildren can have a better quality of life.
