Silvia Yamileth
Silvia, 19, is single living with her mother and two nephews. Since she was very little she’s worked with her mother doing chores in agriculture like growing corn, sorghum and beans. Silvia is the youngest of her siblings; they all live in other places.

A few years ago she opened a grocery store because there weren’t any stores in the place where they live; her mother has supported her quite a bit. She has to get the merchandise she sells in the store in a town and city that are a half-hour walk from home; there is no public transportation available.

The loan she’s asking Fundación Campo for is to buy more basic staples and to buy two pigs to fatten up and sell in two to five months. With this investment, she’ll have enough merchandise on hand to meet customer demand and will earn income that will be contributed towards household expenses. She wants to save up to do some home improvements and to continue improving her business.
