Ana Elvia's story

Ana is a business woman who's business is located in a residential area. For the great love and preoccupation she has for her children she decided to move to be close to them. She sells merchandise like hair conditioner, shampoo, deodorants, clothing, etc. She sells to friends and people in her neighborhood. She has come to realize that her volume of sales is low. This is the principal challenge and threat for her business.

Her store is the only way Ana has of supporting herself as nobody is giving her anything. She is a single mother and although her children are adults, they have their own responsibilities and the money they sometimes give her is not enough to cover her needs. So for this reason Ana every day opens her store with the hopes that her sales improve.

Ana is requesting a loan to buy merchandise wholesale to restock her store and make it more attractive. Also so customers can find a greater variety of products. She hopes to increase the money flowing into her purse and be successful enough to be able to hire people who like her are denied work due to age and health.
