Catalina Saturnina's story

Sra. Catalina is 53 years old, single, and has two children (ages 12 and 16). She sells candy, dairy products, juices, cookies, and a variety of other products according to the season. Catalina has a vending post at one of the busiest areas in the city of El Alto. This loan is her first cycle from this city. Sra. Catalina will use the money to buy mobile phone cards in bulk that she can sell in her business. Her reason for requesting this loan is so that she can diversify her business. Sra. Catalina faces challenges in her business, such as dealing with the competition on a daily basis, so she will utilize the benefits of this loan to continue buying a variety of products to restock her business.

In due time, her wish is to rent a shop that is stocked with a variety of products.
