A loan of $300 helped buy construction materials.


Silvia Marcela's story

Silvia Marcela H. G., 29, lives in the Medardo Andino neighborhood. She lives with her boyfriend, and she has two small children. Part of her plan is to remodel her house. For three years she has been selling natural cold drinks. Another part of her plan is to expand her place of sales and to diversify the products she offers. She is now experiencing family problems because she lost her mother. Her mother supported her economically, and she watched the children while Silvia was at the university. Because of this she stopped her studies in order to devote all of her time to selling and to her children. She is asking for this loan to buy construction materials to expand and build the roof on her house.
