Silvia lives in the town of El Torno. She was born in Chuquisaca department but came to live in the city of Santa Cruz twenty years ago. Her husband provides a taxi service in the city of Santa Cruz. He has been in this business for 4 years. Silvia has three young, school-age children. Both she and her husband have to work to support their family since their incomes sometimes don't stretch far enough.
Silvia will use her loan to buy clothes so that she can increase her working capital. During the end-of-year season, demand for her products is high which means that she can save a little money. Silvia is a very hard-working person and she is grateful to our institution for the support she receives.
