Celia, aged 59, is married and the mother of three children. She was born in the province of Cusco, department of Cusco, and currently lives with her husband in her native city.

Celia is a teacher who was laid off, but she still works as a teacher in the private school "Leoncio Padro". Currently she is on vacation. She has already worked for ten years in this school and is doing very well. Celia owns also a grocery store; during her vacations she opens it very early and during the rest of the year only in the evenings.

Celia expects to be granted a loan of US$900 which she will use to buy goods such as beer, rice, soft drinks, mineral water, etc. Celia's dream is to expand her store or open another one.
