Silvia De Los Angeles's story

Silvia de los Ángeles is 51 years old and married with five children, one of whom still lives at home. She is from the town of Chinandega, in the western region of the country where the main industries are business and trade. Silvia owns two stalls in one of the local markets where she offers products such as clothing, shoes, shirts, blouses, etc. She started this business several years ago as a way to support herself and has gradually expanded it until she was able to open a second location. One of Silvia’s dreams is to improve her living conditions and to grow her business; that is why she is applying for a loan to invest in clothing in new styles and colors, with the goal of stimulating demand and increasing her profits. Silvia is very grateful for the support offered by Kiva investors to low-income people.
