Cecilia Maria's story

Cecilia is 55 years old and lives in the municipality of Ayapel. She’s a very humble woman who lives in a post-conflict town, so although the war ended, there are many things that need to be improved.

She works selling drinks, something that she started this same year looking for a better way to help her family. She loves working because it has become a passion of hers, something that she enjoys doing and that allows her to support her family, which is what she cares the most. She wants to improve her business so she’s asking for a loan to buy 20 beer boxes and sodas to sell in November and December, which are great months for her business.

Support this humble woman and lend now.
