Ana Miriam's story

Ana is 42 years old and lives in her own house with her two children (ages 10 and 7) and her husband. She has a store where she sells basic groceries such as beans, milk, eggs, bread, milk, oil, and others. She has had this business for many years, which has given her sales experience that allows her to obtain the best profits possible. Her store is located in her home, which is in a heavily trafficked area. It is well known by her neighbors in the area and she has obtained many customers, allowing her to keep the store well stocked.

She is seeking to expand her business with a new investment but is in need of capital. For this reason, she is asking for a loan that will allow her to buy what she needs for her store such as soda, sugar, salt, soap, oil, margarine, etc. She promises to pay off her debt and at the same time is confident that she will be able to give her family a better quality of life.
