Oty Katty's story

Oty is a member of the 'Mujeres del 2000' community bank which is located in Calleria district, in Ucayali department. She is 23 years old, married, and has one child. She has not been a member of Manuela Ramos for very long but she has a great desire to work and get ahead in life. For this reason, she decided to set up a grocery store.

Oty will use her loan for 1,700 Peruvian soles to buy: 1 wooden shelf, 2 tables, 8 chairs, 2 dozen brooms, 1 dozen dustpans, 3 packets of mineral water and 2 packets of soda.

Oty's husband is an administrator by profession and he provides her with guidance on how to run her business.

Oty is grateful to Manuela Ramos for the support they have provided. Thanks to their loans, she has been able to make one of her dreams come true.
