Miriam, 36 years old, is single and lives in a central area with her children. She has a professional degree in Education and she has one son who is dependent on her income, who needs a lot of care from her. For this reason she stopped working in her field. She used to work in a high school, and now she works in retail in a neighborhood store. She has four years of experience in this work. She works Mondays through Saturdays, and she also has a connection point in the form of three telephone booths, which generate more income since her store is located in a busy part of the city.

But now she does not have sufficient resources, so she is requesting a loan for the purchase of products and materials for her store. This way she can offer more variety and increase her profits even more, to offer her son a better standard of living.
