A loan of $750 helped to buy shrimp and blouses, shirts, pants, etc. for her business.

Celina's story

Celina, 34, lives with her husband and children. She has been selling fish and shrimp for four years from the home they live in, although they do not own it.

Celina is a hard-working woman who is determined to get ahead. She buys her products wholesale and sells them to the customers who visit her at home in the community of San Lorenzo in southern Honduras.

She is requesting a loan to buy 200 lbs. of shrimp, as well as blouses, shirts, pants, etc. With the support of the loan she hopes to improve her profits during the Christmas season when sales of these products are high. She is happy to continue working with Prima.

Celina hopes to start building her house in the new year.
