Catalina Agripina's story

Catalina, 60, is married and has three adult children who are now independent. She started her shoe-making workshop 8 years ago with her husband’s help; they manufacture sandals they then sell. One of her greatest difficulties is transporting the footwear because they have to hire a pick-up truck to do so. She will use the loan to buy leather, soles, buckles, glue, etc. Her goal is to buy a pick-up truck to transport her footwear to different places.
