Cecilia's story

Cecilia, 35 years old, is married and the mother of four children, three of whom attend school. She lives with her family in a home they own. She also supports her mother, although they do not live together. She works as a baler for a banana company. She plans to use this loan to buy construction materials (two doors, cement, grates, windows, etc.) to continue construction on her house. Cecilia hopes to improve her living conditions and pay for her children’s studies. In addition to working as a baler, Cecilia is a businesswoman who sells staple goods (sugar, oil, rice) out of her home and with some other workers from her company and other companies in the area.
