She is the mother of three children and with much effort and work she has managed to advance her varieties shop, which has meant support for her and her family for a long time. She offers candies, chocolates, accessories, ladies' intimates, stuffed animals, etc. in a location which has difficulties because it remains hidden from customers. With the help of the loan that she is requesting, she wants to knock down a wall and build a window so that her customers from the street can see easily into the location. She will invest part of the loan in candies, chocolates and soft drinks. The importance of this loan is that it will help her gain more attention and positioning in her work area, exhibiting her shop in front of the pedestrians which pass by daily without even knowing it is there.
