A loan of $300 helped to buy corn and basic products to stock up her store.

Celsa's story

60-year-old Celsa lives with two children who work to make a living and help her with the household expenses. Celsa has a store for perishable products like candies, sodas, bread, and dairy products, among others; and in order to get higher earnings she makes tortillas from Monday through Sunday. She has many loyal customers. It was thanks to these businesses that she was able to get her children ahead in life, and which today are very important to her because they allow her to count on daily sustenance and likewise count on everything she needs.

Celsa asks for a loan with which she can buy a larger quantity of corn to make her tortillas, and also to buy propane gas and products to stock up her store and thus increase her profits by offering her customers better service.
