    Ana Maria or Doña Ana, as she prefers to be called, is 48 years old and she has been selling personal care products for four years. She also sells other merchandise such as shoes, clothes, bed clothing and cosmetics. In front of her house, she sets up a small table where she displays groceries and sweets for people to buy them. “Tengo un poco de todo," she says ("I have a little bit of everything" in Spanish). She is trying to satisfy as many customers as possible. Ana explains that her children live in the US and they are the ones who send her money to buy the products, little by little. She has also found support in Vision Fund's loans to help her increase her stock, but they have also helped her in her personal life since she has made home improvements with the profits obtained from all the sales. She is asking for a new loan to buy the shoes her clients have requested and to buy more sweets to enrich her little table. She thanks God for the good health He has provided her with, but also for the good luck and results she is getting from her sales. With the loan, Ana will be showing her responsibility to the clients because she needs to deliver the shoes they need. She will also increase the quantity of sweets she sells to to take advantage of the elementary school next to her house. Now that people in her community know her well and the types of products she sells, Ana thinks it is the right time to build an establishment where people can shop at a single place. She also longs to achieve this because she wants to spend more time with her children. With the obtained profits she will keep buying "un poco de todo" to save and get the desired establishment.
