A loan of $650 helped to buy beauty and personal-care products.

Silvia Elena's story

Silvia, 37, has dedicated her life to watching over her family's well-being because her husband died several years ago. Her two children, ages 15 and 9, are her greatest gifts. With the goal of supporting her household and improving their financial situation, Silvia earns a living selling products via catalogue, a job that allows her to earn an income at the same time she spends time with her children.

Silvia's requesting a loan to invest in buying beauty and personal-care products because she has high customer demand for products.

She hopes to improve her children's quality of life.
