Celiflora Inocencia's story

Celiflora is 45 years old, and she is married to Inocencio with whom she has 3 children, Alejandro, Marina and Alberto. Two of them are in school, with the older one in his first year of secondary school and the younger in the 6th grade of primary school. Her eldest child is married and has his own family.

She has had a grocery store for 20 years. She says that she decided to begin this business because she wanted to find a way of helping her husband, and her children with their studies, in order for them to have a better future.

In order to take advantage of the economy she is asking for a loan to invest in the purchase of merchandise such as: oil, salt, sugar, drinks, milk, soap, toilet paper and other items, so she will have a better supply of products.

One of the dreams that Celiflora has is to grow her business, and to provide an excellent service, and so with a larger number of clients, she would have more and better income.

She says that this is the best help that they could give her, because thanks to this, she now enjoys a better quality of life and a good business.
