Sonia is 37 years old and divorced. She has two daughters: Flor, 12 years old, and Karina, 2 years old. She has a home constructed out of fine materials. Initially she had a presence in economic activities like the production of cocoa seed and organic coffee. Then, with the support of her now-ex husband she opened a grocery store, to which she dedicates all of her efforts with the goal of giving a quality of life to her family. Her work routine starts very early and she attends to neighbors and friends in her neighborhood who come to buy high-necessity products like rice, sugar, canned foods, among others.

However, being a very busy business, she has customers who she provides products on credit, who are late in paying off the price, harming her final earnings. To again stock her business, she wants to have a capital, and proceed with the purchase of more merchandise, hoping to maintain or increase the amount of customers. Her objectives in the short term aim to the improvement of her business, the reason for which she requires having 1000 nuevos soles for the purchase of more merchandise in bulk of non-perishable products like rice, sugar, canned fish, and cereal.
