A loan of $1,000 helped to purchase a motor for her vehicle.


Catherine's story

Catherine is 22 years old and has a four year old son. She sells rope and twine that is mainly used in construction to secure building materials. Her sales stand is located in the “16 de Julio” zone. This is her first loan with the institution. Catherine is going to use the loan to purchase a motor for her vehicle. Now that the motor is defective, this greatly impairs her ability to do business because she uses the vehicle to transport merchandise to her sales stand. She is requesting this loan because she does not have cash. Catherine is going to use the proceeds to invest in working capital. She wishes to improve her quality of life and that of her entire family.
