Alma P. Q. is 24 years old, married, and has a two-year-old son. Her husband helps her with household expenses. She sells clothing for babies and children, sweaters for men and women, and also sells traditional quipiles (blouses). She has been selling her products on market days in the plaza of Texpan for three years. This loan she is soliciting is for investing in her business – she would like a greater variety of sweaters because, during this season, she also works on making her quipiles. Her dream is to develop her business to improve her economic quality of life and to also improve her son's opportunities for the future.
