Enriqueta is 50 years old and married to Mr. Gabriel Vargas, 52 years old. They have 7 children, aged 28, 24, 17, 16, 14, 11 and 9 years. The 24 year old and the 17 year old are currently working in the city of San Paulo in Brazil; the oldest is married. The 4 youngest children still live with Enriqueta and Gabriel and study in a local public school.

Both Enriqueta and her husband are hardworking and enterprising people. Enriqueta's husband works as an employee in a local sawmill and to increase his earnings he also works as a laborer in the construction industry. Enriqueta is the owner of a stall where she sells fast food she prepares herself, along with natural juices made from seasonal fruit. In addition to her food business, Enriqueta washes and makes clothing. The couple does all of this work with their children in mind, wishing to give them a good education so that they will have access to better opportunities than their parents.

She is applying for a loan so that she can invest the capital in the purchase of raw materials for the food she prepares: flour, milk, meat, egg and oil.
