A loan of $600 helped to buy products for her store.

Silvia Dominga's story

Silvia, 41, lives in the city of León. She's divorced and the mother of two children, ages 22 and 14; only her younger daughter studies.

She makes a living in commerce as the owner of a convenience store. She's grateful for the support she has received from Kiva that benefits her because she managed to have working capital to stock her store. Currently she's the one who primarily makes the purchases to stock her business, waits on the customers, cleans the shelves, and cares for her children. She's always active and ready to work and strive to have food for her family.

She needs the loan to buy rice, sugar, oil, detergent, bleach, soup, notebooks, pens, colored pencils, oatmeal, toilet paper, etc. She wants to see her store full of products requested by her customers so she can sell more.

One of her goals is for her daughter to have a university education and to improve the infrastructure of her house.
