Juana
Juana is 65 years old. She is a good woman who is kind and determined. She is a single mother of six children who live independently of her. She has her own house where she has lived alone for a long time. Thanks to her work, she was able to educate and feed her children. Her children are now of legal age and help her with some of her expenses, but she still works a lot in order to pay her expenses. Juana's work mainly consists of selling groceries; she purchases wholesale and then sells at retail prices. She obtains good profits that surpass her original investment. The business is located in her house and she has been running it for more than ten years. Occasionally she generates income by working as a seamstress - repairing garments or creating her own designs. She also makes a living by breeding pigs and selling them when they reach the ideal weight.

She likes her grocery business because it allows her to be in contact with her customers and distribute her time so she can do all the other work that is necessary for maintaining her finances. She hopes to continue with her growing business in this way and expand her workspace.

This is her tenth loan with Microfinanzas Prisma. She is very grateful for the opportunity they have given her and for the financial support, which she needs to get ahead. She is committed to making her monthly repayments on time and continuing to work responsibly alongside the members of her communal bank. With the requested amount of 1500 PEN, she will buy merchandise for her grocery store, in addition to balanced food, vaccines, and vitamins for her animals.
