Silvia Lorena's story

Silvia, 29, lives in El Transito, San Miguel department. She has a bakery. She lives with her parents and is a single mother of a 4-year-old son who depends economically on her.

The business started with help from her parents. The bakery is located in her house. She has 14 employees. She does not have a fixed work schedule and needs the loan to invest in the bakery buying flour, salt and sugar at wholesale. This purchase will be of much help because she’ll have all the necessary materials to do the work and make bread.

Silvia’s objective is to improve production, increase it and get more customers. This advance will lead to improved, more stable living conditions for her and her family.
