Paoj Tzununul Group's story

Catarina is single, 24 years old, and has 3 years of primary education. She has two children who are not in school yet. She makes a living in sales working at a general store. She started this business with the purpose of supporting her community, since a store did not used to exist where she lives. So far she has 10 years of experience, and has the support of her husband who is engaged in agriculture.

She organized a group to apply for a loan, which will be invested in the purchase of products for her store, such as everyday goods for the kitchen, candy, soft drinks, juices, dairy products, etc. She hopes to have the best shop in her sector. The other members of the group make a living in sales and agriculture.
