Juana Verenisse
Juana, 18, is a single young woman living with her parents and siblings in the city of Chincha. Despite being so young, she’s a kind, hardworking, enthusiastic person who very much wants to improve. Unfortunately, because she needed to work to help support her family and cover her expenses, she’s been unable to study a professional career but dreams with being able to do so someday. In her free time she enjoys watching different movies and sometimes cooks a delicious “Arroz Chaufa” [Chinese-style fried rice] to share with her family.

Juana works very diligently and enthusiastically as a cashier in a local cafeteria. She heads to work every day and believes that she does well because of her good work habits and the kind customer service she provides.

Juana is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the help they give her she will be able to add a room to her house because her house is currently built with matting and this way she’ll be able to have said room so that her family and she can have better security and wellbeing. Juana will thus continue working and striving to reach her great dream of becoming a good professional. She hopes to get ahead with her family.

About Caja Rural Señor de Luren

Caja Rural Señor de Luren is a microfinance institution based in Ica in southern Peru that primarily promotes the development of the country’s agricultural sector through lending. Today, it also offers credit for consumers, microenterprises and housing improvements, and has expanded its financial services to promote micro-savings and provide micro-insurance. This institution has been instrumental in helping borrowers recover from the devastating earthquake in the Ica region in 2007, and works with Peru’s National Bank to reach some of the poorest and most remote microfinance clients in the country.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
