Erika is 37 years old, single and has been a nursing assistant for more than four years. She lives with her parents who need the client’s moral and financial support, so she helps them and doesn’t drift away from them. That was one of the reasons that prompted her to engage in her commercial activity of selling casual clothing.

She is known by her clients and coworkers to whom she sells her products. It is for this reason that today she is asking for a loan to be able to buy more merchandise and somehow improve her income so that she can help her family financially since with the granted loan it will be easier to achieve this and as a consequence attain her dreams such as buying land and building a secure future for her family. In addition to that she wants the increased satisfaction of having achieved her goals and to see her beloved parents happy for what their daughter could do.
