Celedonia's story

Celedonia sells clothes in one of the busiest streets of the city. Together with her little granddaughter they leave in the afternoon to sell the clothes that during the whole week they will offer to the clients that pass through this area. This area is busiest at nighttime and there is more opportunity to sell, and for this reason they both stay until the late hours of the night to be able to sell more and not have to leave with only a little bit of money. Celedonia is in charge of the little girl since her daughter, the mother of the granddaughter, passed away. The objective of this client is to care for and make sure the little girl studies so that she can be a professional, since she is her only companion. She will use the money from the loan to purchase the latest season of clothing.
