Celmira's story

Celmira is 54 and is an enterprising and hard-working woman. She is also very cheerful and sociable. She is married to Placido, who makes a living through transportation. He is the father of their 4 children, but only their son Jonathan, who is 19, and their daughter Grecia, who is 12, still live with them. Celmira loves them very much. They live comfortably in their own home. Celmira makes a living renting video games. She has a small location in her house for her business, and only adults can enter. She started her business more than a year ago with 2 video games, and she has made it grow. Her children help her attend to the customers. She also sells beauty products that she buys from a catalog and sells them among family members and friends. She attends to them in a friendly manner, which makes her business known. She has sold beauty products for more than 5 years. She considers her businesses to be rather profitable, and she can help her husband with their home's expenses. She likes her job because of the good atmosphere it has, and she likes helping her customers in a friendly way. On the other hand, she doesn't like the disorder that happens at times when her business is crowded. But with her income, she can pay for her home's expenses. She has plans to expand her business and install more video game machines. In the future, she wants to have a small grocery store in her home. This will be her fourth loan with Microfinanzas Prisma. Through it, she hopes to make her plans concrete. She promises to make her payments on time like she has with her previous loans.

With the requested amount of 3,000 PEN, she will invest in the purchase of 2 video game machines valued at 2,000 PEN total, and for the costs of their installation. In this way, she can address the demand she has.
