Her shop is busiest Thursdays and Sundays, the days when the market is busiest. She also sells childern's clothing. Catalina has two young children who are in school. Her husband Milton is a supervisor for the Suma Pacha Company. The loan will be largely invested in the purchase of clothing for infants and children. Catlin is very grateful to Kiva and partner Emprender for the confidence she has received by being granted this opportunity.
