Grecia, 23, studies business administration and is married. Her husband works as a driver and they have a four-year old son who does not attend school yet. Her mother and two brothers live with them but her only dependent is her son.

For three years she has been running a store, having learned to manage it from her husband who encouraged her. Apart from the store she studies at the university and is about to finish. One of her brothers helps with the store and works at home.

She will use the loan to buy goods such as drinks, sweets and staples in order to replenish her inventory.

Her goal is to graduate and work in her profession. She will then let her brother run the store. With her earnings she hopes to save up for her thesis, and also to give her son everything he needs.
