Catarina is married and has two children who attend a school that's near her house.
She works as a teacher by day and at night she goes to school.
She needs the loan in order to purchase construction supplies (metal sheets, beams, rods, rocks and cement) that she'll use to build her house.
Her biggest dream is finishing her house so that she can improve her family's living conditions.
She also wishes to graduate from college and purchase a vehicle for personal transportation.
