Corina's story

Corina is a 39-year-old woman, she is single, and she has three sons who are 2, 13, and 20 years old. Her business is food sales.
She is a good mother, very talkative and friendly. She has her business in the neighborhood 'plan 3000,' known for receiving the migration from the fields to the city, an area where the citizens are multilingual.
Corina is brown skinned, with black hair, and a medium physique. Her mother tongue is Guarani, which she speaks with her family, and she speaks Spanish because of general culture. She shares her life with her children who study at school. The youngest one is not yet of school age. They live in a house that is the property of the family. It is made of brick and has potable water, electricity, and a sewage system.
Her business is the sale of food. She has a hamburger cart where she prepares different meals, such as hamburgers, fried chicken, and grilled meats, which she serves together with rice, yucca, or salad. "I started my business with my cart, which is old and small. I need to improve the business by renovating my cart..." she says. The advantage of her business is that she can count on daily sales. The disadvantage is that her cart is small and does not meet the demand.
Her dream is to have a comfortable food stall. She wants to buy a big hamburger cart to be able to prepare more food and meet the demand. In the 3 years that she has had this occupation, this is the first sequence of loans with the institution.
It is for these reasons that Corina asks for a loan, to buy a big hamburger cart to sell more food.
