Sra. Severa is single and lives in a rural area in the town of Pocona. She has a son who is no longer under her charge and is living independently.
Sra. Severa comes from humble beginnings. Her main business activity is farming and she is producing potatoes, beans, and corn throughout the year. She has a home of her own, but it is old and made of basic materials. Severa lives with her elderly mother and is helping her. For the farm work, she hires seasonal workers to help with planting and harvesting her products.
Severa currently needs a loan so that she can buy a plot of farmland in order to increase her production. This will improve her earnings, as well as her living conditions.
