Silvia Melania's story

Silvia Melania set up her business seven years ago, selling cosmetics and perfumes. She then started working in a free trade zone and sold her products there. She extended her business, selling clothes and footwear, and now has a larger customer base as her work colleagues make up most of her customers.

Thanks to the financing of Fundación Leon 2000, she has been able to obtain a tool to make a living for the support of her two dependent children and, together with her husband, they are teaching them to get ahead and improve their life day to day. Silvia needs this loan to buy clothes, perfume, sheets, creams, towels, bags and footwear.
