Catarina's story

Catarina is 59 years old and lives in Nahuala, in the Sololá department. Her family consists of one son and one daughter, both of whom are now adults. Catarina has a boiled maize grinder and a shop, where her husband helps her. Catarina needs a loan of 6,000 Qetzal in order to buy more products for her store, to invest in the grinder and to offer her customers better service. Catarina is a very enterprising person and helps her family with an income. Her future wish is to buy a larger grinder.
