Gregoria Catarina's story

Gregoria Catarina, who is 28 years old, has 2 children (one who is 8 years old, and one who is 3 years old). She has sold soap for more than one and a half years (soaps, toothpaste, baskets, benches, brushes, shampoo, etc.). She makes her sales by walking on foot in various towns on their market days.

She is requesting a loan to purchase more merchandise so that she can stock her business better. This season, she hopes to increase her sales. She has had more demand this season.

Her goal is to be able to save enough money to send her children to school so that they can have a better future. She would also like to build and improve her family's home and pay for some of her family's household expenses.
