Laura is a young, 38 year old, single mother. She is only trying to get ahead with her two children who attend the public high school. Soon she will have to be better prepared because one of them is about to begin university and her dream is to see them become professionals. Laura sells cleaning chemicals for the home. Many times she comes up short of chemicals due to lack of financial resources, most of which she uses to pay household expenses and to pay school expenses. She wants to try working with a loan, so she is asking for a loan to buy more products so she can continue making sales. This is her only source of income.
