Cecilia Maribel's story

Cecilia is a member of the Sarita Colonia community bank. Cecilia is married and aged 43, with two children aged 16 and 9 who are currently studying in school. She is a primary school teacher, who teaches handicrafts and who always used to be told that her designs were very good, so two years ago she had the idea to make jewellery in order to sell it. The mothers of her children are her customers, and she also sews on the street in the afternoon. Cecilia needs a loan of 800 soles in order to buy materials for her jewellery making and cloth for making school aprons. Since she has been in Finca she has learnt the value of unity. She has a lot of ambition to improve herself and has planned her investment well. Cecilia's dream is to have a handicraft workshop.
