Celia is a member of the Communal Bank "Great Power", located in the district of Ilave, the province of Collao, and the department of Puno. She is 28 years old, married, and has four children. She completed her secondary education.
She has been working with Manuela Ramos for 10 years. Her first loan was for 300 PEN, which she invested in the purchase of products for the preparation of quinoa juice (quinoa is a grain-like crop that comes from the region). Celia has two business activities: the sale of bread in the afternoon and the sale of quinoa juice in the morning. She is currently asking for a loan for 2,400 PEN, which she will use to buy the ingredients she needs to maintain operations of her business. Her dream is to buy a bus and start a business transporting people on the route between Desaguadero and Ilave.
Her favorite part about working with the Communal Bank is the punctuality.
