Catalina is 54 years old and comes from the community of San Miguel, Bohol. She is married and has four children, ages 19 - 30. She supports the needs of her family by farming rice and by making and selling coconut wine. (Her husband collects the coconuts from coconut trees.) She has engaged in this business for 20 years. She is asking for a loan to buy fertilizer for her rice crop, and tungog (a palm vinegar coloring ingredient). She hopes that this will make her farm more productive so she can have a better income for her family. She hopes that she can save enough to renovate her house and buy home furnishings in the future.
