Catalino's story

Sr. Catalino is 50 years old and married to Sra. Romelia, age 44. They have three children who are studying and dreaming about becoming successful professionals.


Don Catalino sells remedies, but he also has a small snack bar that he established more than 21 years ago. He started out with a small amount of capital he obtained after selling a motorcycle. Catalino set up a wooden stand on one of the busiest and most well-known street corners of the city. He was able to form a large customer base. Catalino is a self-sacrificing person who has demonstrated that he can get ahead as a result of his work. The loan he is requesting will be used to buy sodas, snacks, cookies, candy, and other items to restock his snack bar, which will allow him to continue working.
