Eliana is 27 years old and has an elementary school education. She is the single mother of a 7 year-old child who is studying in a public elementary school in the area where she lives. She lives in the south Maica neighborhood. About 3 years ago she was living in her mother's house, but she decided to become independent by building some rooms for herself and her child on land adjacent to her mother's property. Eliana has a business producing crude milk that she later uses to make and sell cheese to the merchants in the area. She needs some investment capital to rent pasture land for her dairy cows. This is an opportunity that she can't turn down, because it will help her to provide better feed for her cows, and in this way increase her milk production and income. This will help her to finish the construction on her small house and improve the living conditions for herself and her child.
