Katerine Alexandra's story

Katerine is 34 and lives in the town of Soledad with her 15 year old son, who is the driving force of her life. Because of him, she is motivated every day to generate more income at work in order to insure his current well-being and future success. Katerine is the proprietor of a restaurant where she sells breakfast, lunch and dinner. She started her business 10 years ago when she had begun selling for a transport business and the then restaurant owner left her the business when she went to live in the neighboring country of Venezuela. Her principal customers were the drivers for that transport line and today she has succeeded in adding the administrative employees of Transmetro, the city’s massive transportation service, to her clientele, as well as others from neighboring businesses.

Katerine’s dream is to have her business establishment added to her home and this is a major goal. This loan is the first funding she has had from FMSD. With it she will purchase a cooler and a heating cabinet so she can provide better service to her customers and especially offer them a comfortable and desirable space to briefly relax.
