Hi, I’m Celia Castañeda. After my husband’s death, I had to face the tough reality that I was now the sole provider for my family. Having no job, I became an entrepreneur out of necessity. I had no idea where to start and was afraid, not knowing how I was going to put food on the table for my children
I heard about the Academy for Creating Enterprise through a friend, and knew that I needed to attend. It truly opened my eyes and helped me think in ways that I never had before. Now, after a couple years of of hard work and faith, I am the proud owner of my own successful papelería (paper and copy center), which provides for all of my family’s needs.
