Valentina
Valentina is a 39-year-old woman, married, and the mother of two children. Her business is a neighborhood store.

She is a strong, humble, fighting, persevering, conservative, and very hard working person. She runs her business out of her home, located in the "3000 plan," south of the city. It is 12 kilometers from the center of town. This zone is characterized by the thousands of vendors organized by trade. Over a dirt floor covered with smelly water, on top of wood stools, and below steel and canvas roofs, there is a conglomerate of vendor stalls. There are stalls for vegetables and fruits, chicken and red meats, infinite varieties of cereal, Andean potatoes, and limitless groceries handled by women in long skirts. Interspersed among these are stalls of clothing, audio equipment, DVD, notebooks and pens, jewelry and soaps, and music born from the most incredible hybrids.

Valentina has a dark complexion, long, braided, black hair, and short stature. She works at her business Monday to Sunday, from six in the morning to 12 at night. She sells all types of basic-necessity household items such as bread, eggs, oil, rice, beverages, milk, sugar, etc. She wants to grow her business to improve her family's quality of life. Her main need is to purchase merchandise wholesale for the store, thus cutting costs and expenses.

It is for these reasons that Valentina is requesting a loan to purchase basic-necessity household goods wholesale, and with the savings to improve her family's quality of life.
