A loan of $575 helped to buy basic grains.


Geyli Silvet's story

Geyli comes from San Rafael del Sur in the town of Managua, Nicaragua. She has been selling basic grains such as rice, frijoles beans, corn and other food products for four years.

Her business has improved and her customers are starting to ask for a wider range of products. Therefore, she needs a loan to increase the variety she offers in her shop.

She puts a lot of effort into her work and is always ready to face up to any challenges. She is capable of growing as a small-time business owner in her community and be an inspiration to others.

She used to work as a maid in an important local hotel, but she was motivated to start up her own business when she lost her job.
