Ana's story

Ana is a young woman of 23, mother to a four-year-old girl. She got married a few months ago. She is hardworking and humble and she puts in a lot of effort to make her plans happen. She lives in a rural community. She began doing this work a few years ago since she was a single mother and she needed to make money to support herself and her daughter. Her business is a small operation, where she makes uniforms for different banana workers who are located in the area where they live. Her mother works together with her. Ana is currently studying, doing a degree in Business Administration at the University of Costa Rica. It is far from her community and she has to take two buses to be able to get there and study. When she goes to the University she relies on her mother to care for her daughter. For Ana, the vital thing is to get ahead academically and to grow her business, for the good of herself and her family, no matter the distances she has to travel to get to her place of study. She is requesting a loan to buy an industrial machine and raw materials.
