Katerin Gabriela's story

Katerin, 18 years old, is a girl who has always been affectionate, responsible and enterprising. She lives with her mother and sister in a rented house.

Katerin owns a grocery store which is in a a different place than her home. She started this business 3 years ago with some savings she had and with the support of her mother. She wants to better stock her store in order to meet the needs of her customers, improving her sales and generating greater profits.

Katerin is requesting her first loan to be able to buy: chicken trays, candy, sodas, ice creams, eggs, bread, milk, yogurt and other necessities.

This will help Katerin to have a better lifestyle with her mother and sister.
