Corali Estrella
Corali is a young mother who needs to generate income to support her daughter. Her parents have helped her by giving her space in their house for a store where she sells a variety of products. Corali gets up at 6:00 a.m. to open her store because that is when her bread suppliers deliver to her. From then on, she serves her customers with her young child at her side. All day she serves her neighbors and other people who needs to purchase items at the store.

Corali needs the loan to stock her business, as at times she lacks operating capital and the store is understocked. She dreams of having her own family and going to college, but for now her baby is young, and she has no one to take care of her. Her parents help her with housing, but they also work and leave the house for the entire day. She must care for the baby and watch the store because it is her only source of income.
