Catalina Del Carmen's story

Catalina is 48 years old and for many years now she has dedicated herself to the earth. With much dedication, she cultivates corn and beans, which permits her to provide her home's daily bread. Catalina is characterized as hard-working, honorable, and a responsible woman. She lives with her family, composed of her husband and their 3 children. Catalina works long and hard alongside her husband to advance her family and offer them better conditions of life than they have had. Catalina's thorough knowledge of agriculture is how she manages to provide for household needs. With a great desire to advance, Catalina came to this institution to solicit a loan, since planting time is approaching and it is necessary to begin sowing as soon as possible. This is the reason Catalina is requesting this loan. They must invest in the purchase of needed agricultural inputs such as: seeds, manure, insecticides, fertilizers, plaguicides, etc., for the sowing. Catalina has faith in God and in her work which, in this manner, will help them achieve an abundant harvest, thereby securing a better quality of life for her and her family.
