Siliva, 59, is married, has two kids and lives in the town of Choloma, Cortes. She has sought to create her own source of income and has a business where she sells clothes like blouses, dresses, pant, skirts, etc., natural medicines and other products.

She has had this small business for 8 months, which she set up in front of her house. She has invested various loans into her business to keep it open and now she is asking for another 25,000 lempiras to stock up on merchandise such as clothes, sandals and natural medicines to sell. Her goal is to continue growing her company.
