Grimaldina, 37 years old, lives with her 3 children, Ruth, Joselin, and Grecy Fiorela, all of whom are currently students thanks to the support she gives them. Together they live in a house made of high-quality materials that is still not finished. For 10 years, she has run her own business, which is transporting various kinds of merchandise, taking charge of receiving the orders and then contracting with drivers for the transportation. In all this time, she has succeeded in gaining experience. One instance of this was when her vehicle broke down in the middle of the road. Having faced that, she performs technical maintenance on her vehicle at regular intervals. Among the plans she has in mind is expanding her house and putting in a hairdressing shop. Now she will only ask for a loan, which will be her second, to reach the amount she needs and expand her house as well as perform the finish work.

Grimaldina de 37 años convive con sus 3 hijos: Ruth, Joselin y Grecy Fiorela, todos en la actualidad estudiantes gracias a su sustento que ella les da. Juntos habitan en una casa de material noble que aún esta inconclusa. Desde hace 10 años lidera su negocio propio, que consiste en el transporte de diversas mercaderías, encargandose de recepcionar las solicitudes y luego contrata los choferes para su transporte. En todo este tiempo, ha logrado ganar experiencia, uno de ellos, fue cuando su unidad se queda varada en plena ruta, ante esto cada cierto tiempo le da mantenimiento tecnico a su vehículo. Dentro de los planes que tenia en mente es ampliar su casa y así acondicionarla a una peluquería. Ahora solo pedírá un prestamo, el cual sería el segundo, para completar el monto que requiere y realizar la ampliación de su casa así como también los acabados.
