A loan of $225 helped buy book-bags, pencils, pencil sharpeners, notebooks, and pens.


Silvia Maritza's story

Silvia lives in her own home with her two daughters who are 12 and 17 years old. She sells clothing for children, women, and men, along with school supplies. She began the business 10 years ago. She does not have a set schedule. She will use the loan to buy school supplies for this beginning of the school year season and to buy merchandise like: book-bags, pencils, pencil sharpeners, notebooks, pens, and other necessary items of this kind. She will obtain more customers and improve her earnings. Silvia's dream is to always keep her business stable. She wants to live well with her children, and to give them the opportunity to study so that they can become professional and move ahead.
