Irma Raquel's story

Irma Raquel is a widow. Her husband owned a taxi cab, which she is now taking charge of. She hired a person as a chauffeur. This person works in the taxi and the income is for her. She is applying for a loan because she needs to do some maintenance and buy some parts for the car, but she doesn't have the money she needs to do the maintenance and buy the parts that the car needs to keep running.
Irma Raquel lives alone. She has two daughters who are already married and have their own families. They help her with her expenses. She will pay off the loan with the income she gets from the taxi. She hopes to keep her taxi cab and that way continue to help the person who works for her.
