A loan of $625 helped to buy clothes, cosmetics, and shoes.

Silvia Elena's story

Silvia, age 39, lives in the Villa Venezuela neighborhood. She is married, and her husband works as a taxi driver. They have two children, age 10 and 19, and the children go to school.

She sells used clothes and cosmetics at her house. At times she goes with her husband to sell in the departments. She does this in order to manage to balance the expenses with the sales.

This is the first loan that Silvia has requested from AFODENIC. She will use the loan to invest in her business with a variety of clothes and shoes. This investment will help her quite well to improve her family’s finances a bit.
