Celia's story

Celia is 40, she is married to James with whom she has six children, they live together at a house they own and they educate their children from home. Celia's work consists of dress making, she has a small shop at her home where she provides all the services that her customers request. She has done this work for 11 years and as time goes by she has learned to provide good quality service to her customers. She really enjoys her work, it keeps her mind occupied, she can also manage her own time and make schedules at her convenience, it wasn't easy to get used to being independent because she had always worked for other people and didn't know how to manage her own business, with time her insecurities faded and now she is great at her activity. At this time she is requesting 1,500 new soles to buy dress making materials such as fabric, needles, elastics, zippers and other items, she is very happy to know that she will have the financial support needed to continue with her business and is committed to make her loan payments punctually.
