34 year old Silvia is a single mother whose daughter depends on one hundred percent. Silvia is originally from Coyolito, Amapala.

She runs a business selling clothes and shoes from her home and has been doing this for some ten years. With this business, she has been able to get by successfully. Her partner left her three months ago, but she is determined to be successful by herself. She is requesting a loan to buy more merchandise in order to be ready for the Christmas season because many people buy new clothes for their children to wear at Christmas. She makes her sales to the local villagers, and her sales are very good because hers is the only business of this type in the area where she lives.
