Celestina


A loan of $850 helped buy cement, beer and sodas to resell from her home.


Celestina's story

43 years old, Celestina is married and has one 8 year old son who's in 4th grade. She also helps to support her father who is retired and lives with her.

Celestina is a trader and sells products from her home almost every day. In addition to this she also owns a hair salon at her home.

The money from the loan will be used to buy cement, beer and sodas to resell from her home. Celestina is hopeful that she will be able to grow her business and expand her hair salon.

Her main challenge is to continue with her business and open one more establishment in another area - in other words, to expand her business.
