They are participating in the survey of 50 indicators to understand the quality of living of each member and decide how they should proceed. One of the members is Soraira. In the last survey she show a poverty level of 3 which means that through her work efforts she continues to improve her situation. But she is also conscious that she must continue this work and effort so that it becomes permanent. Her business is a hair salon and she comments that she has a good clientele and that things are going well as the clients like the attention that she gives them. Soraira is requesting a loan to buy shampoo, rinses, dyes, etc so she can continue to provide good service to her clients as she has been doing.
