Asteria is 47 years old, and she has two children that are currently attending college. For the past 12 years she has been selling medicines, a business that she attends most of the day and in which she gets the support from her husband, Mariano, who is a doctor . Thanks to this business she is able to provide for her sons' education. She likes her work because she gets to talk to people, and she is able to provide them good attention and care. For Asteria it is very difficult (like for any mother) to be apart from her children, and to not see them daily.
With the money that she will get from the loan she would like to expand her business so that later on she can open a medical practice with her husband.
