Celina Estela's story

Celina is 47 years old and lives with her family, her husband and their grown children. Her children are working hard at obtaining their bachelor's degrees. They are very happy because they will be graduating soon and will be able to help their parents to bring money into the home. Celina is very friendly, which is a great quality of hers. Thanks to her friendliness, she has a lot of customers. Through hard work and dedication, she has made herself into the owner of a beautiful paper goods store, which is how she makes an honest living. Celina is very dedicated to her work, because of which her family is never lacking in their basic needs. Even so, she wants her business to grow a little more. So she has decided to request a loan from INTEGRAL to purchase reams of paper, glue, pencil sharpeners, pens, pencils and other items. With these purchases, her store will become a place where people can find anything they may need and little by little, it will improve her quality of life. Celina has faith in God that she will receive the help she is asking for, and she is grateful to the people who, out of a good heart, offer help without asking for anything in return.
