I had to get the noun from Natalia, but I think your phrasing, "the most limited" works the best for me in this context. "The most modest dreams, with the most limited resources...". Thank you very much. 4 KudoZ points were awarded for this answer
I don't think I've ever asked a question that was harder to grade.

My final version will probably use elements from several answers; I only wish I could distribute the KudoZ points. Thank you, everyone.
