Celia's story

Celia, 57 years old, lives in Santa Tecla, Department of La Libertad. She lives with her 2 daughters, a son-in-law, and 2 grandchildren. Celia has a restaurant in front of the local municipal cemetery, a place much frequented by visitors and where there are employees from various offices in the surrounding areas. Here Celia makes delicious breakfasts and lunches with the unparalleled home-style flavor that characterizes her efforts and brings many of her customers back. For this reason, she has become well known in the zone, having worked at this for many years. Celia is a kind and positive person. On various occasions, her frequent customers ask to wait until the end of the month to pay their bills, leaving her, often, without funds to buy primary materials to prepare the meals new customers request. Now, to expand her clientèle, Celia requests a loan that will provide money to buy ingredients needed to prepare her breakfasts and lunches, including fruits and vegetables, seasonings, and meat, among other things, thereby increasing her earnings. Celia has received excellent references from her clients and neighbors as very responsible.
