Casilda is a single mother, she is 48 years old, and her daughter lives independently. She lives alone in a rented home and she makes skirts that the city's Cholitas use (Cholitas are members of a Bolivian social and political indigenous movement). She is very responsible with her work and she is prospering economically.

A few years ago she bought a car that she uses for her own transportation and also for a taxi service so that she can make more income. Because of wear and tear, she needs to do general maintenance and make repairs. It is an old model and so she already needs to change the tires, replace the motor, and other things like this. She is seeking a loan so that she can make these repairs and continue being successful, as she wants to overcome all obstacles.
