A loan of $550 helped to buy an industrial stove.

Silvia Maribel's story

Silvia Maribel M., age 26, lives in the Reparto por Bajo neighborhood. She sells breakfast, lunch, and sweets. Her business, an eatery, is called “Las Gemelas” (The Twins). The business is located in the San Pablo Market in the capital city.

Her business is open every day from seven in the morning until five in the afternoon. First she starts cleaning, and then she makes the food.

She will use the loan to buy an industrial stove. She will do this to make the food quicker and in greater quantities. This will help her in her work, and she will serve her customers more quickly.
