3 De Mayo Group's story

Silvia, 23, is married and has a son attending fifth grade. Her husband’s name is Alfredo and he’s a farmer. She’s a merchant; she has had a grocery store for three years that she says is doing very well.

Silvia lives in a very tranquil community and her store is located at home so her customers are neighbors. She hopes to do well with the business because she’d like it to grow more but she says that she’s moving it forward at present because she needs the investment and this is why she will use her loan to buy oil, soft-drinks, juice, milk, eggs, sugar, beans, rice, etc. She’s very grateful for her loan because it’s going to give her business a strong push.
