Mirian, the client, is 18 years old and single. She works for a publishing company in the city of Cochabamba. She currently lives in the western zone of the city of Cochabamba, about 5.5 km from the city of Cochabamba. The house where she lives is not her own; she lives with her young son in a rental house. She has one son who depends on her income. The purpose of her new loan from the organization is to buy merchandise (books), because she works selling books. The merchandise that she deals with is very expensive, and she needs capital for her business because she uses up her salary to pay the rent on the house where she lives. Thus she will have another way of meeting the needs of her family. For this reason we are presenting this small story about the client.
