María is 52 years old, is married (in a free union) and all of her children are financially independent. For this reason, all of her income goes to her and her husband. She describes herself as a hardworking person who likes to learn and doesn't content herself with mediocrity.

María works renting and administering 3 apartments which throughout her life she eventually came to own. They are all under contract. She is asking for this loan so she can remodel the apartment where she lives, making certain necessary repairs.
