A loan of $550 helped to buy products to sell.


Silvia Estela's story

Silvia lives in Concepción Batres in Usulután department. She is 38 years old and runs a store in which she sells basic items for the home. She has her own home. She started this business a year ago, having already gained experience as she had previously run a store in a local school where she lives.

Silvia needs to invest in products for her store since sometimes her customers look for goods which she doesn't have in stock. For this reason she is requesting a loan in order to be able to make this investment, thereby strengthening her business, providing better service to her customers and increasing her profits. Her goal is to have a stable business, to develop as a small businesswoman, to increase her number of customers and to have better options in life.
