Cecilia Elizabeth's story

Cecilia lives in Las Orquídeas. She is 48 years old, married, and has two minor children. She made the decision to look for work in order for her children to continue their education.

As no one gave her the opportunity to work at a business, she decided to get together money in order to open her sewing business.

Her business has grown little by little, and she now has clientele. Cecilia works alone in her business every day. She heads to work at 6:00 a.m. after leaving her children at school.

She will use the loan to buy fabric, clothes, and various items. Her goal is for her children to finish their education and to have income to improve her business and her house.
