Her restaurant is already very well known in the area.

She lives with her husband, who works in electronics repair, and one son who is of school-age; her other children are older and independent. Ingrid is a very responsible and punctual client. She will invest her loan in sets of tables and chairs, a stove exhaust fan, and a set of pots, since the high demand at her restaurant will require her to increase the number of dishes served.
