Catalina De Jesús
View original language description ↓
Catalina is a divorcée and lives in the city of Guadalupe in the region of Nuevo León. It has been five years she sold cosmetics, which was right after her divorce. She had nobody else to depend on to help her to keep her family going, so she started her own business to cover their living expenses and her children’s education costs. She started selling these products amongst neighbors, but soon increased her sales due to her hard work. Now, she has a large customer base and has also incorporated the sale of food supplements into her business, which has been very well-received by her clients.


In order to grow her business and meet her customers’ demands, Catalina is seeking a loan of $1200 that will be used to purchase more merchandise. She promises to pay this back in 6 months. You can be a fundamental role in the development of this business and help Catalina and her family – she appreciates the confidence and support.
