A loan of $300 helped to buy scrap metal to sell.


Ana María's story

Ana is 37, married, and lives with her children, her husband, and her mother. The children go to school and the eldest helps his father with the family business in his spare time. Ana studied until the 5th form and works as an employee in a neighbouring house. Her husband buys and sells scrap metal. Ana has been working as a domestic employee for 15 years in her neighbours' house. She started working at a time when her husband had just lost his job and could not find another one. Thanks to her efforts, they managed to buy a car, which the husband now uses to buy and sell scrap metal. The loan will be used to buy scrap metal to sell, since they have no money left to do so. With this loan, they will be able to improve their family income once again. Ana's plans for the future include keeping her job in order to improve her whole family's standard of living. She sees this loan as a growth opportunity for the family business, one that will help her give her children the best possible education.
