Juana is a member of The Dawn village bank. She is 39 years old and has been a widow for nineteen years. She has one son who is 23 years old, is married and has a daughter of his own. They all live together in Juana’s house.

Juana became pregnant with her son when she was 14 years old. She decided to work selling food from her house. Sadly, for years she suffered from kidney problems and had to stop working for a while. When her health improved, she decided to start selling clothes to her neighbors and this business is currently going well.

Since joining FINCA Juana feels more secure because of the loans and she has learned how to save. She needs a loan of 1,200 soles to pay for clothes and to place more orders for clothes. Her dream is to have more clients.
