Silvia Esperanza's story

Silvia Esperanza is affectionately known as "Doña Esperancita" by all the inhabitants of the municipality of El Sauce. She’s a 56-year-old mother of three independent children who all became professionals thanks to her efforts since she’s both their mother and father.

Thirty years ago she inherited her business when her mother died and left her two mills so she and her family could live off their income. To date, she provides milling services. She mills corn used to make tortillas and grains to make refreshments. The mill is located at home and is very well-known by residents because of its long history. It’s worth noting that it’s very popular due to the kindness of its owner.

At present, she needs a loan to buy bricks, cement and to pay labor costs to build a drain because her dream is to have a house with adequate conditions. She trusts in God that Kiva lenders will finance her loan via Ceprodel because it’s only by these means that her life’s dreams can be reached.
