Eladia is separated and has a young son who is in primary school. She has been a merchant for the past five years. She has a small grocery store located in her house, from which she sells all kinds of basic grocery goods. Her ex-husband helps her every month with a certain amount of money that he sends; their son has a heart condition that requires special care and medication.

Eladia works without rest all week in order to provide for her family and also to look after the education and health of her small son. She is a dynamic person who wants to get ahead in life so that she can give the best to her son. All she wants is to make progress. It is for this reason that she is requesting a loan to increase her merchandise stock, which will allow her to increase her income.
