Silia Nohemy's story

Silia is 24 years old and lives with her two children. They live in their house which is in good condition because, right from the beginning, Silia made sure to look after the house so that the children could live in the best conditions that she could offer them. Silia is hard-working and enterprising and the breadwinner in her house. She makes sure that there is nothing lacking in the house and she finds a way to make sure her children do not suffer greater hardships. Silia sells crabs and fish and has no major competition as she is the only one to sell these products near her house. People choose to come to Silia and buy seafood from her because she is a charismatic sales-woman and customers are left satisfied with their purchases. Silia wants her business to grow so she is applying for a loan from Integral to buy more seafood such as crabs, river shrimp and big shrimp. What Silia wants is for her business not to stay small but to sell more and more. She hopes and has faith in God that the help she has applied for will be given and she thanks all those with good hearts for offering a helping hand to give her children a good life.
