Katy is a member of the Magnolia community bank.

Katy, 27, is in a common law marriage and has 2 children.

She rents a local space where she has a shop. She sells vegetables, groceries, and she also has 3 calling booths. Katy has 2 calling booths in different locations where she has 2 employees.

Katy needs a loan for 1,000 PEN to buy beer.

Katy’s dreams are to improve her business, have her own capital, have a taxi fleet, and that her children go to school and get an education.
