One of them is Patricia Lorena, a humble, hardworking, and self-sacrificing woman with desires to improve and to get ahead. She wants to find the way to be able to give her loved ones a better quality of life. She helps to provide for her home and family by selling clothing.

She requests this loan to buy assorted clothing for sale, such as jeans, pants, blouses, t-shirts, etc.
