Silvia Elena
Silvia is 48, originally from León and is married with three children. Her academic level is basic as she only completed primary school up to the sixth grade. She is a shopkeeper with her own grocery store. She started her business 12 years ago. Using her own money she bought small amounts of products such as drinks, milk, rice, beans, oil and eggs. She also bought women's clothing and accessories to sell, and grew her small grocery store until it was her means of survival. Her husband contributes to the household with the money he earns as an electrician.

She asked for this loan to buy beef and chicken, everyday products asked for by her customers. By buying a greater amount of these products, she will be able to offer her customers a better deal and make more profit. In this way she will be able to invest in buying other products which are also in great demand in her shop. She wants to buy two glass cabinets and a large aluminium shelf and to paint her shop to improve its appearance, as she is expecting her business to expand and improve each day. She wants to buy more inventory to keep her store well stocked, as well as to gain new customers and keep her current customers satisfied.
