Luisa is 39 years old and in a common law marriage. She lives with her partner who is a cook, and they have 3 children. They are still single because they are not able to handle the expenses associated with married life. In addition, they have other expenditures that they have to deal with at the moment. Luisa raises small animals such as guinea pigs, piglets, and chickens. She requests a loan to by more animals for fattening, breeding and to sell them. They represent all of her wealth and family sustenance.
