Johannna Marieliza
Johanna has been working out of her workshop for 9 years now because she had to leave the workforce when her kids were little. She began working in areas she had knowledge about in order to gain income which is why she later decided to start up her clothing workshop.

She know has her own textile shop and works from 9AM until 5PM, Monday to Sunday. Her current challenge is that her work space to make clothes is too small due to the fact her workshop is an extension of her home.
Johanna is married and has 2 children; ages 10 and 4. Her kids study at a public school and her husband works at a shrimp packaging plant. With this loan she plans to make home improvements like enlarging the workshop by buying: sand, cement blocks, paint etc.. One of her goals is to expand her business and improve her living conditions.
