A loan of $675 helped to finish constructing an annex for her local store, offering better service to her clients.


Celia Pastora's story

Celia continues with her local store and her sales have been growing because of the financial loans she has been granted in all these years from Kiva field partner Afodenic. The business has occupied part of her living room, leaving little space to share with her family, but it has been for the common good of everyone. Her husband continues helping and working as a taxi driver, and her children continue with their schooling. She has a start on the construction, and with this new loan she will buy construction materials in order to finish the enclosure for the annex on her home that will serve as her business and offer more comfort, space and better service for her clients and her family.
