Silvia Eugenia's story

Silvia is a client who is taking out her third loan. During her loan evaluation meeting, she showed a good attitude. She was polite and kind. For this reason, she was chosen to receive a Kiva loan.

Silvia lives in Cotahuma district, in the city of La Paz, Bolivia. She currently lives with her two young children. Her husband works for a company. Silvia took out this loan to increase her capital by purchasing merchandise with which to stock her store. Her business is large and located right in the middle of an avenue. Over time, Silvia would like to own her own home. She will achieve this with care, will and hard work.
