Katerine
View original language description ↓
Catherine belongs to the “Líderes Triunfadoras” (Successful Leaders) community bank. She lives in the Callería district, in the department of Ucayali. She is 36 years old and is the mother of minor children who are dependant on her. She is separated and the income she has isn’t enough to cover the household expenses. For this reason, Katherine decided to invest her first Manuela Ramos loan, of S./300.00, in motor lubricants.

She currently has a business buying and selling wood. She gets up very early to help her children get ready and then takes them to school. She then goes to the mills in Manantay and seeks out her customers. In the afternoon, she takes care of her children.

With a loan of S/. 3,000.00, which she will pay in 6 months, she will buy a larger quantity of raw material (wood) of different species, such as quillobordon, quinilla, and capirona.

Katerine has been very content since she began working with Manuela Ramos. She feels like a self-realized person in all aspects of her life and she asks that you continue supporting women so that they can learn to value themselves for who they are.
