A loan of $500 helped to buy fruit and vegetables to resell.


Catalina Rosa's story

Catalina, 63, lives in her own house with her son and a little granddaughter. She shares household expenses with her son which is a great help for Catalina. She works selling fruit and vegetables in the municipal market; she’s been in business 10 years which has led to her being very well-known in the zone and to have several regular customers.

Catalina is a very hardworking woman who is asking INTEGRAL for a loan with an enormous wish to have the amount of money needed to buy larger amounts and variety of seasonal fruit and vegetables because this business makes it possible for her to earn profits needed to cover her personal and household expenses. Because of this, it’s very important for Catalina to improve her sales in order to have a better, more stable life.
