Silvia Elena's story

Silvia is the mother of three children. She is an enterprising 36 years old owner of a small general store. The business has increase her family's income.
Her husband works in construction which has made it easier for them to build. Little by little they have been completing their house but for lack of money they have not yet finished. Only a part is missing to finish the whole house. She wishes to finish it before the winter fully arrives in order to provide better accommodations to her family. It will also provide better hygiene conditions and safety from violence.
The loans have been aimed at improving the construction of her house.
