Silvana is a 30 year old woman and she has many aspirations for the coming years, one of them being that her bazaar and clothing business prospers. She started her business with capital that her mother gave to her. She runs her business from her house and decided to put her bazaar there, as there are many schools close by. She works alone, from seven in the morning til nine at night. She has trouble with crime in the area. She is not married and doesn't have any children. Her most important dream is to obtain a shop on the bay to sell clothes and have her own home.
