Celina De Las Nieves's story

Celina de las Nieves is from the city of Carapegúa. She has worked selling fabric for over 10 years. She has her store in her own house, which makes it very easy for her.

She is a very hard-working person who, despite the difficulties, has never given up and seeks the way to be able to continue improving herself. She says that she works with her daughter and, in this way, they help the household. She asks for this loan to be able to purchase fabric in bulk and, in this way, to be able to stock her business.
