In the photo, she is seated on the left. She is an older person who works selling candies and snacks in her sales locale in the Villa Dolores area of the city of El Alto. This loan is her first cycle in the institution. She is going to use this loan to buy construction material to build some rooms in her house. The reason she is asking for this loan is that she wants her family to be comfortable, since her children are growing and they need their space. Celestina faces challenges in her business such as the competition, since there are several stores in the area that sell the same products that she does. She wants to keep selling for her business and in the long term have a well stocked store. She is happy and grateful to the institution for the support it has given to her and the other members of the group.
