Cielo De Jesús's story

After suffering the death of her only child, Cielo de Jesús O. A., aged 60, decided to forge ahead and struggle to support herself, since her son was the one who supported the household.

Cielo says, still with a look of sadness on her face, that the blows that life has given her have also driven her to keep on going. Now her vegetable store is her only source of income that lets her keep on standing.

At present, Cielo needs a loan to buy a variety of products, specifically, items for the family shopping basket and vegetables. In this way, she will increase her inventory and her income.
