Celestina's story

At 56 years old, Celestina is an incredible and exemplary woman because she is very hardworking, responsible, and positive; in addition, many people give good references regarding her character and her work. She has always strived to give the best to her family. She lives with her two children in the house that she owns.

Several years ago, she decided to use her knowledge about sewing, so she set up a sewing business in her residence, making all kinds of clothes at very accessible prices. She also offers quality in her work, which is why many people prefer her. She has a great deal of experience, especially with regular customers who like her more every day.

Celestina made the decision to request this loan from INTEGRAL to invest in her small business by buying the necessary supplies for making garments, such as fabric, thread, elastic, buttons, etc. She does all this with the goal of giving her customers better service so that they will feel motivated to continue soliciting her work, thereby increasing her sales and her income. She hopes to achieve her objective and improve her quality of life.
