Celestinha's story

Celestinha, 37, is applying for a loan of $1,200 USD through KIF to help improve her business. She runs a kiosk in front of her house and will use the loan to buy stock to sell, such as Fanta, Coca-Cola, Sprite, Sagiko, biscuits, coffee, sugar, salt, eggs, water, fish, milk and slippers.

She re-payed a previous loan on time. Celestinha is making good money from selling and she wants to apply for a larger loan in the future.

She lives in a town nearby the school; her kiosk is located in a strategic place where many people come to shop, including students.
