Juana Catalina
Sra. Juana Catalina is 40 years old. Her husband José helps her with managing her business of selling fish. Juana enjoys selling fish because it generates a very good income. She began selling fish four years ago with her mother.

Juana plans to hire an employee to help her with selling fish so that she can start a new business selling food, in addition to her business selling bedspreads from a catalogue, which she started 7 months ago, and does in the evening when she is done selling fish. She travels to neighbors' homes to show them the catalogues and as her clients are friends and neighbors, she lets them buy bedspreads on credit, with weekly or biweekly payments--whatever the clients want.

She is requesting a loan to buy more fish since she sells a lot of this product. Juana is very pleased with the results of her business. If it were not for the support she received from her husband and Fundación Realidad, she would not have been able to generate the income she earns now.

Her dream is to open a restaurant so that her customers can eat in comfort and watch television. In her restaurant, she also wants to have games for children. She thanks Fundación Realidad for the support provided so that she can move forward and fulfill her dreams.

Llegando a su casa va con sus vecinas a mostrar los catalogos de colchas y como sus clientas son sus vecinas y amigas pues les deja las colchas a crédito en pagos semanales o quincenales como ellas quieran.

Ella pidió el préstamo para comprar mas pescado por que se vende mucho, esta muy contenta por los resultados que le esta dando su negocio y por el apoyo de su esposo y de fundación por que sin ellos no estaría obteniendo las ganancias que ahora tiene.
Su sueño es tener un restaurante para que sus clientes vayan a comer en comodidad vean la televisión y que su restaurante tenga juegos para niños.
