Silvia Del Carmen's story

Silvia is 30 years old. She is a responsible and honorable person who lives in her own home with her husband and their 2 children who are currently in school. 3 years ago, she began selling seafood from her home and, at the weekend, she travels to sell in different settlements and markets near to where she lives. With what she makes from her business, she is able to cover some of the household expenses. Silvia is requesting a loan to buy seafood wholesale to be able to continue her business as this is her only source of income. With this, she hopes to make better profits and offer her family a better quality of life.
