Darlin Maricela
Darlin is an 18-year-old woman, single, without children, and her business is a neighborhood store that she opens every day Monday through Sunday.

She is an enterprising, determined dreamer, persistent and very hard-working. Her business is the sale of basic necessities for the home and also the sale of kitchen utensils such as pans, silverware, and knives among others.

Darlin has tan skin, long black hair, is of average height and dresses fashionably. Her store opens at six-thirty in the morning, the time when the bread seller arrives, and closes at nine at night. She works all day long taking care of her store and almost never closes it. Little by little, her business is making inroads into the sale of new products, because her customers are asking for items and utensils for the home. Her desire to improve herself has brought her to invest in the sale of new products and in this way offer her customers better quality products, and in this way improve her sales. She wants to be able to become independent and save to pay an anticrético (a type of rent which functions as a loan to the landlord in exchange for housing).

For these reasons, Darlin asks for a loan to purchase kitchen items in bulk and with the profits save to pay an anticrético (a type of rent).
