Silvia Elena's story

At 50, Silvia owns a grocery store, which for two consecutive years has moved forward and emerged victorious from challenges for the love of her family. In this valuable and fundamental economic activity, she has the absolute protection of her children. A merchant who, despite her high age, has great goals in life and she will not rest until she sees them come true.

Silvia has asked for MiCrédito loans together with KIVA to buy sugar, milk, cocoa, fruits, bags, beans, oil, and rice. Silvia, in the near future, plans to solidify her grocery store.
