Cecilia's story

Cecilia is 35 years old. She is married to Victor Ferreira, and they have two grown children and one minor child.
She used to work at a family's house until she was able to open her convenience store in her own house. Meanwhile, Victor works at a food packaging company.

She opened her convenience store in 2009 with some modest shelves and basic necesity products for sale. Today, Cecilia also sells ice cream, beverages and various products for the home as well as snacks.

Cecilia needs this loan to acquire meat products, soda, eggs, snacks, ice cream, cold cuts and another freezer to help her store the products as she acquires them. Her dream is to be able to finish construction on her modest home as well as pay for her youngest daughter's studies.
