Ketty María's story

En the county "24 De Mayo," the community bank "Nuevos Horizontes De 24 de Mayo" meets. This place is known for its beautiful landscapes and its hard-working people dedicated to agriculture and animal husbandry.

Ketty lives in this place. She is 47 years old. She is divorced, but she has three children who are 25, 20, and 19 years old from this relationship. Two of them live in her house. Ketty is a woman who would like to get ahead so she can better provide for her family. She has a store in the center of the city in which she sells all types of automobile lubricants. She works every day from 8:00 AM to 6:00 PM at which times she closes her business in order to relax. Her business is very busy since it is located near a mechanic's workshop, which is why her sales are very good. She has had the business for two years, which is how she gets ahead.

Her loan is to buy oils and lubricants. She has been in the community bank for four years and she likes it because the loans enable her to support her business. Her dream is to improve her business.
