About Ana

Ana
Ana

Ana Paola lives in Santa Ana were she was borne 25 years ago. She has beautiful brown eyes that reflect her positive attitude towards life.

She says she always wanted to have her own business, to be independent, but didn’t know exactly what to do.

She got married to a good man and had a baby “Jose” who as she says, gives sense to her life.

Ana’s husband started working at the beach so she was in charge of their son’s care. After a while, she realized she could start a business while taking care of Jose, so she began selling products by catalogs and then bought her first showcase in order to have always products to sell to her neighbors.

Ana currently have 2 showcases and continues to sell by catalogs. She has been able to take care of her son, while she works and have an income for her personal expenses and to help her husband with the house.

With the last microcredit she asked for, Ana bought a motorcycle to do deliveries.

Ana’s goal is to build an independent space for her store next to her house and we are confident she will do it.
