Silvia Marisela's story

Silvia is an enterprising 34-year-old single woman living in Guadalupe with her family. She is a single mother with two children who are the inspiration of her life and for whom she fights day in and day out to provide a better future. For five years, she has been selling beauty products and it's going really well because she is very responsible, hardworking, happy, and pleasant with her customers.

Silvia is grateful to the Kiva lenders whose help will allow her to stock up on merchandise for her beauty products business and maintain a diversity of products to offer her customers. Thanks to this, her income will grow and she will keep on getting stronger so she can move her family ahead.
