Cecilia's story

Cecilia Paredez is 28 years old and she is married with Mr. Arnaldo Gomez, 32, and they have two daughters together who are still too young to go to school.

Cecilia started her sales around the year 2006. With savings they earned from the sale of a few home appliances they went to another city in search for good deals. They decided the best option for them was to sell jewellery and brand name clothing. Slowly they started to be known and now they have a good client base in the city and in the suburbs. They sell their merchandise by travelling to different locales.

She will invest her loan in the purchase of more merchandise (clothing and jewellery) to fill the orders that have already been placed.
