Nelcin Catalina's story

Catalina, 32, is known for being a tenacious and resourceful woman. She is able to see, even in a difficult situation, great opportunities. She started her business with a loan that was provided to her. With this sum of money, she started up a store so that she could cover the household expenses and support her 13 year-old daughter. She still has this store, and she wants to invest in it. This is the reason why she is requesting a loan. She will use the loan to stock up the store and pay off some overdue bills. Catalina's main wish is to be able to grow her small business and convert it into a big grocery store. She hopes that her financial situation will improve, and that she will be able to provide her daughter with a better quality of life.
