Celestina's story

Ms. Celestina González is a 45-year-old woman who lives in the Laureles Norte neighborhood of the capital city of Managua. Her husband is a bricklayer, and they have three grown-up children. She started selling CD’s and DVD’s for a living two years ago with the help of loans. Her plan is to be able to finish building her house and make room partitions to give her family more privacy. She needs this loan so that she can build a wall, and for this, she will purchase building materials for the partitions. Her future goal is to be able to obtain an office space so that she can sell her high-quality movies. This business is profitable because she sells a lot of merchandise, so she hopes to increase her capital.
