Geyli Silvet's story

Geyli is a small merchant in the town of San Rafael del Sur, Managua, Nicaragua. She’s 31-years-old, married and has two children one of whom in school age.

She has a general store where she sells human consumption products like rice, beans, sugar, oil and corn, among others. Before having her sore she used to work in a hotel in town. When she became unemployed she looked for a way to invest in a business of her own so that she could work for herself to meet basic family needs and help her husband this way.

With her investment plan she intends to expand her activity to improve customer service. Her goal is to offer better quality service and product availability in her store which is why she’s asking CEPRODEL for a loan to increase her inventory.
