Celia's story

Celia lives in the Monte Alto neighborhood in community of La Guardia, 20 km from the city of Santa Cruz. She was born in the Sucre department. Fifiteen years ago she came to the city of Santa Cruz, seeking better days. Her main activity is selling snacks such as empanadas, coffee, chocolate, and other food. Her husband, with whom she has 1 child, works in home construction. The loan she has asked for will be used to buy a refrigerator to keep her food and her business' ingredients in. They are paying for their home and so have to work hard to cover the debt and support their family. She is very grateful with the institution for the support it has offered.
