Celestina's story

Celestina is 62 years old and is married with one child. She creates in all types of work with wood from spoons, to ladles, to napkin holders. She works with her husband who helps her purchase wood and sell Celestina’s work. Celestina has done this work for 30 years. She learned it from her father who was a carpenter. Celestina will use this loan to purchase wholesale wood. Her reason to request this loan is that she lacks capital to purchase the wood for work. Celestina faces challenges in her business including overcoming poverty. She is going to use the benefits to improve her quality of life and that of her family. This is the only work that will allow her to support her and her family. For this reason she is happy and grateful with the institution for the help provided.
