A loan of $1,075 helped merchandise.

Silvia Maria's story

Silvia Maria is 44 years old and has 4 children, but only one son is still a minor under her care. She works selling basic products, the most popular of which are clothing, shoes, toys, and cosmetics. She started this business 12 years ago, and began it with her aunt, who was then in charge of used clothing sales and little by little increased the inventory until making the business what it is today. The loan will be used to buy merchandise, since if she buys right now and sells in December, her earnings will increase as prices are low right now. Her dream has always been to make improvements to her home, and so she hopes to invest more in her business so that it will be more profitable and give her the resources to improve her home.
