Catalina
View original language description ↓
Catalina has always been very dedicated to improving the economic situation of her family. In the community where she lives she works in the fabrication of bricks, an activity she grew up knowing about. She has already been working in her factory for 9 years and plans to continue working for many more years which is why she is applying for a loan of 2000 soles to increase her working capital. Through this she will improve the well being of her family and cover the educational expenses of her 3 children. Help Catalina to continue working hard.
