Celina's story

Celina is 33 and lives with her husband. She has 5 children who depend on her. She lives in her own home and has made a living for 3 years by running a grocery store and seafood-selling business. Her customers are her neighbors and friends that visit her daily to buy her products. Doña Celina lives in a community in southern Honduras and is requesting a loan of 10,000 lempiras to buy shrimp, whitefish, and fillets since her customers are requesting these products from her. She will use the loan that is offered her to supplement her business's financing and to obtain better profits to improve her and her family's living conditions. Her dream is to have a good business with a greater variety of products to obtain profits that will let her improve her home.
