Celia's story

After Celia received her first loan from Kiva, she boosted her business by purchasing bulk products to expand her business. She no longer suffers from competition because she has a variety of goods at her flea market. Using the profit she gets monthly, she is now able to pay fees for her younger siblings and children. She is now able to buy basic commodities for home consumption and she managed to start a poultry business to supply the local business center. Besides that, Celia plans to extend their home by building another two rooms; she has bought some building materials such as door frames and doors. Celia managed to pay back the previous loan and has great plans to upgrade her life with the profits she got from the business. She plans to get into bigger businesses and her greatest desire is to build her own shop. Celia is grateful to her lenders and she sends warm regards to them. She looks forward to get another loan so that she can expand her business.
