Maria Catalina's story

Mrs. Maria S. is 52 years old. She is married to Mr. Julian Gomez who works as a driver. They have 3 children, but only the one in high school is still dependent upon them. Maria sells food like seafood soup, seafood cocktails, fried chicken, roasted meat, breaded and fried shrimp, bottled refreshments, and water. She also rents apartments. She has had her cafe for 28 years. She needs a loan now to be able to buy more products to make her food. There is a big demand during Holy Week. She needs to be well stocked in order to meet the needs of her customers. At this time people eat a lot of seafood.
