Ariana Maria
Ariana, 32, is married. Her husband sells wood. She has her own business renting tables, chairs, and a mobile disco service, livening up birthday parties, weddings, "quinceañeras" [fifteenth-birthday celebrations for girls], and baptisms.

She wants to buy 75 plastic chairs with this loan to strengthen her business a bit more so she can earn more profit to help her son, who attends school. With a lot of effort she earns money to pay for his school expenses, because often it's the low season for events.

Even so, Ariana doesn't lose hope because in the future she wants to have a restaurant with a disco. This is why she's always willing to work to grow little by little.
