Catalina, 40, has 6 children and works selling clothing for men and women like t shirts, pants, etc. She has 10 years of experience doing this and little by little has overcome challenges in her business. She tells us that she is very happy because her customers have increased considerably.

She is asking for this loan to buy varied clothing because her customers are asking for other designs and she can't supply them. Her dream is to have a bigger stall and to give the best to her children so that in the future they have better opportunities. She hopes that the foundation can help her with the loan she is requesting.
