Catalina is married and has a son. She is from a humble family who lives in the municipality of Esquilan in the southern region of the city of Cochabamba.
She earns a living in raw milk production. However, production is low because her livestock are not being very well nourished. For this reason she is applying for a loan of 10,200 Bolivian Bolivianos to buy animal feed and soy for her cattle. This will help her to increase her income.
