Silvana is an adult. She has her husband but also a strong desire for self-improvement and to support her family. Because of this, she started a business on her own selling shoes on prior order. She gradually improved despite the obstacle she has of her daughter being in school and having to provide her with school supplies and uniforms.

Silvana owns neither a house nor land but with her work in commerce was able to get a house under the anticrético modality [transaction whereby a property owner requests a "loan" from you in exchange for housing, which must be paid back to you at the end of your contract. If your loan is not repaid, the property owner could lose the property to you] that shared with her brother.

Silvana used to work as a taxi driver providing public transportation service but she had collision that left her without a work tool so she’s now in the process of overcoming this and needs financing.

Her living relationship with her husband isn’t very clear; she has no interest whatsoever in having his support at work nor economic collaboration from him.
