A loan of $700 helped to buy vegetables to sell.


Silvia Elizabeth's story

Silvia is 34 years old. She is a single mother of two daughters, ages 13 and 8. She is very hard-working, since she has to support her family by herself. Silvia sells vegetables in the market, where she offers several varieties of vegetables for which there is much demand. With the desire to improve over her competition, which is great, she is applying to INTEGRAL for a loan, with which she can buy a greater variety of vegetables such as cabbage, yucca, chiles, cauliflower, onions, and others. Silvia longs to improve her earnings, since it is her only source of income and she needs to support her two daughters, who are her priority. She wants to give them all the best, which she will manage thanks to this loan, since this represents the key to improve.
