Cipriana Celestina's story

Cipriana Celestina is 34 years old, married, and completed the first year of her 'educación primaria' (education for children aged 7-14). She has four children, three of whom are in school. Her business is weaving 'cortes' (traditional skirts). She started out as a worker and now has six years experience. She has the support of her husband who works in commerce.

Cipriana Celestina is requesting a loan to buy threads of different grades and colors. She hopes, in the future, to have a large business and a lot of capital.
