A loan of $475 helped to improve a small cafeteria by buying ingredients for her dishes.


Clara Celeste's story

Clara Celeste, a thirty-three year old mother of two school-going children, owns and operates a cafeteria in San Cristobal. Because she has to take care of her children during the day, in addition to cooking for her cafe, her sister-in-law helps her to attend to her customers.

Clara Celeste is very confident and affirms that she cooks like nobody’s business! That’s why she thinks her business will keep on growing and being successful in the upcoming years.



This entrepreneur is requesting her second loan from FSMA to buy more goods in order to introduce new typical Dominican dishes and increase her revenue. Clara Celeste would like to improve her family’s living conditions.
