Silvia Guadalupe
Silvia is 30 years old, has three kids and is separated from her husband. She covers household expenses by making and selling pozole, a popular regional dish made with corn, out of her home. She also makes and sells drinks. Silvia is part of a collective with three other people who have similar work who would use the loan to invest in more supplies for their businesses.
