Catalina's story

Catalina, 58, is married and living in the López Arellano sector with her husband and one minor son. She has her own home-based business. For the last twelve years she’s been manufacturing tote bags made from nylon sacks. She sells them in the local market because they are used to carry purchases done in the market. She has stayed in business thanks to the investment of several loans; she’s already asked for 22 loans including the current one. She is asking for 15,000 lempiras to buy a lot of nylon sacks and thread to make the small bags. Her goal is to continue expanding her customer base in order to earn more income.
