Grupo Tzamjuyup Sector Escuela 02 Group's story

Catarina is a 32 year old woman. She is single with a beautiful family of two children aged between 3 months and 5 years. This humble family live in a community in Sololá.

To obtain her income and provide for her family, Catarina buys and sells typical clothing. She has been doing this work for 5 years, and works from the local square.

With the desire to better herself, Catarina has made the decision to request a loan to buy goods for her typical clothing business, with the aim of better satisfying her customers' tastes.

Catarina, together with her group, are hoping to rely on the loan to improve their businesses. Catarina's greatest wish is to build her own home for the well being of her family.
