Siviai's story

Sivia is 25 years old. She is married to Cristino, who is a builder. They have one son, Eliel, who is 7 years old and in the second year of elementary school. Sivia has a grocery store which she has been running for 10 years. She says that she decided to invest in this business because she wanted to become a little more independent and earn her own money. She also wanted to support her son in his studies and enjoy better financial solvency and a better quality of life. She will invest the loan that she received in buying more merchandise such as milk, oil, rice, soap, cookies, soft drinks, etc. so that she can have a better stocked business.

Sivia's big dream is to build premises for her grocery store as this would enable her to have a very well stocked store and offer a wide range of products. This would allow her to improve and increase her profits so that she can guarantee her son's future and ensure he has a very good career.

Sivia thanks Fundación Realidad for the support that they are giving her as it has enabled her to improve her business and her family's life.
