Mexican Entrepreneur Speaks of Success

June 29, 2011 § Leave a comment

Read this inspirational story, in a series by Forbes called Megacities, Opportunities at Urban Edges, about Mrs. Silvia Téllez Figueroa, a Mexican woman living in a poor neighborhood in the state of Guerrero (Mexico). 15 years ago she decided to try her luck at opening a family business. After taking loans from moneylenders and not being able to pay off her dues immediately, she went into debt until finally being able to pay off her loans with the help of family. “Silvia remembers with her eyes full of tears. ‘Those were really hard and scary times.'”

Her success started after her first low-requirement loans, which she used to open her grocery store, which she named “Genesis.”

Silvia, who considers herself an entrepreneur, says: “During these 15 years I’ve learned that faith is the secret of success. I share my thoughts and ideas with my friends because we have to be positive and convinced that we are going to fulfill our goals.” “We shall not surrender.”
