Florentina is 45 years old and married. Her husband works in a mine. With the income that she makes, Florentina helps cover their family expenses. She has seven children but only two of them are in school.

Florentina's business is selling candies in the busiest areas of the city. She has been in this business for more than four years. She is requesting this loan to buy a larger three-wheeled cart since the one she has right now is too small. With the money that she has left, she will buy a little more merchandise such as soda, cookies, chocolates, etc.

Florentina has many dreams. One of them is, in the future, to open a kiosk or a grocery store where she can sell her products. She is very grateful for the trust that is being placed in her.
