Roxana is 41 years old and has 7 children whose ages are 22, 20, 18, 16, 14, 12, and 10 years old. They are all of schooling age. Roxana has a business selling vegetables, where she works in the neighborhood of Garita de Lima in the city of La Paz. This loan is her first with the lending institution. Roxana will use this loan to buy construction materials for refurbishing and constructing her house. Her reason for asking for the loan is that she wants to give more comfort to her children. Roxana encounters challenges in her business, such as that she has to get up very early to buy her vegetables, and the thing that she does well is despite this she works very, very hard to move her children forward in life, as they are her one happiness. She will use the benefits to continue buying things for her house, and her wish is to see her children become professionals. Also, her wish for her business is to increase her business to be a commercial enterprise with other types of merchandise.
