Sandra Catalina's story

Sandra is a young entrepreneur. At the young age of 19, she has already established her own business and she works very hard to maintain it. Sandra sews her own line of clothing, which she sells in her municipality and in other nearby municipalities. She is currently studying fashion design; with great hard work, she has made her own line successful. Thanks to the high quality of her products, she has been able to capture a large section of the market. These clients guarantee her a large level of sales.
Sandra opened her business two years ago. She started off with a very small amount of working capital, so she has found it necessary to increase her production capacity in order to fill all of her clients' orders. For this reason, Sandra is requesting a loan. This loan will offer her the opportunity to buy the tools she needs, such as fabric and thread, and to increase her business' production capacity in order to fill all of her clients' orders.
Sandra hopes that her business will continue to grow and succeed thanks to this loan; and that she will be able to reach her dream of having her own business which is well-known throughout the country, and which will generate a great deal of employment for those who most need it.
