Mi Banquito Group's story

Ketti is a member of the communal bank "Mi Banquito", which is formed by 10 united and responsible people. The majority are neighbors in the region of Matacana. Ketti is 38 years old, is separated and has one dependent daughter. She has spent more than 10 years working in tailoring sweaters, robes, caps, etc. which she makes based on orders. Aside, she offers cleaning services, from which she obtains further income for her home.

Thanks to her work, Ketti has been able to offer a better quality of life to her daughter. She is happy, because aside from obtaining profits with her tailoring, it is what she likes to do. Her future plan is to set up a store where she can showcase her home-made garments. The last loan she requested will be invested to buy wool, since she has orders to deliver. Ketti, like every member of the communal bank "Mi Banquito" is thankful for the supplied loan. Ketti is the first on the right, with the purple sweater and black pants.
