A loan helped to buy clothing merchandise and raw material for her crafts.


Ana Edith's story

Ana is 43 years old and married. Her husband is a driver who is usually on the road away from home. They have four children who attend state funded school in the area: Alberto, 23, Dario, 19, Wilmer, 17 and Katherine, who is 12. Ana is very cheerful, and has worked for more than twenty years selling cosmetics and clothing, and she also paints figures and makes crafts. She is very creative in the way she tries to support her children so that they do not lack for anything.

Ana is requesting a loan to buy merchandise to stock her business which she runs in the afternoons. She will buy materials for her crafts which she makes at night, and the money she generates from the profit could continue to cover the costs of food and education for her children. Her biggest dream is to own her own home.
