Flora Adela's story
Flora is a 44 year old woman, is married, and has 2 sons who are 14 and 16 years old and a 12-year-old daughter. Her business is selling glass and aluminum household furnishings. She is self confident, talkative, and very hardworking. Her business runs in the "road to viacha" zone, characterized by being in the middle of the road connecting the neighbouring populations of the highlands to the city. It has a cold and dry climate, with a maximum temperature of 10 degrees celsius. Flora has a brown complexion, a robust physique and dresses traditionally (hat, shawl, and skirt). She shares her life with her husband, who makes a living from the manufacture of aluminium furnishings, and with her children who study in school. They live in a rented room made of bricks with a corrugated iron roof and a wood floor. They have potable water, electrical energy, and a sewer system. Her business is the sale of glass, single, double, triple, cathedral mirrors, reflective, framed, frosted and tempered glass. She runs the selling of glass and her husband makes frames for windows, cabinets and doors. They offer warranty for their work. Her business is successful because it gives the complete service. The advantage of her business is that her children help her with her selling and her husband with the fabrication of furnishings. The disadvantage is in transporting large glass. Her dream is to improve her business and her sales; she wishes to buy wholesale glass and aluminum. This is the first sequence of loan with the institution, in one year of running this business. For these reason Flora requests a loan to buy glass and aluminum wholesale to make aluminium cabinets.
