Linda, along with her husband, purchases and sells the mentioned products. She asks for the loan in order to expand her business. She wishes to purchase several hammocks and clothes to sell them in Christmas. In this area hammocks are easily sold as it is an area of hot climate, where it is very warm, and people prefer to lie in hammocks rather than in beds, because they are cooler.


She feels very happy because her business generates an income for her to support her home.
