A loan of $575 helped improve the infrastructure of her home.


Celia Argentina's story

Celia Argentina S. is the 54 year old single mother of four children. The children are adults, married, and completely independent. She has been a stylist for over 15 years. One of her youngest children suffers from an illness, which makes the family’s financial situation difficult.

Within her plans was to reinvest in her business. But, she has seen the need to adapt her home in order to make her son more comfortable. That is why she is requesting a loan to buy construction materials that will allow her to remodel her porch. This investment will allow for a better space for her son’s development.
