Pacifica, age 44, has been selling clothes for many years to help cover the household expenses, becuase she is not married and has two children, aged 18 and 17 years old. Due to illness, however, she has had to close her small business.
Living in a semi-urban area called Perimetral, she is working in her business at the moment, because although she closed it due to illness, she has re-opened the shop at the request of her neighbours. She works alone, from very early in the morning, selling blouses at $8, shirts at $12, pants at $15, etc.
She wants the loan to be able to buy clothes (blouses, tops, pants). In the future she wants to finish building her house and be able to earn enough to give her children a good future.
