Mrs. Emiliana is 37 years old, she is single, lives with her parents but is financially independent, and she sells potatoes. She buys her items at the Colomi marketplace every Thursday from farmers to sell at the Ivirgarzama tropic where she has a stall; she has been in business for over 6 years. Mrs. Emiliana needs capital to buy and sell potatoes, as her savings were used to buy a lot of land to build a home. Mrs. Emiliana says that she has small capital for her business and the loan will help her buy more potatoes to sell. She will have to save to build her own home since that is one of her dreams.
