Silvia Priscila
Silvia Priscila, 23, is married and has a three-year-old daughter. Her business is a bookstore that she has had for four years. When she started with her bookstore she sold some notebooks and pens, and she had a very old display case. Currently her bookstore is stocked and she has several display cases and a variety of products she sells to her community, because she's located near the community school.

She's requesting a loan to buy some display cases (furniture) because she has more demand to buy materials but doesn't have the furniture to display them in her business. She's also going to expand her bookstore because she sells other products (sweets, ice cream, gifts for Valentine's Day and Mother's Day, etc.).

Her long-term goal is to buy a photocopier and a computer to use in her business because she doesn't have these resources and her customers request them frequently.
