Juan Gloria
View original language description ↓
Juana is divorced and has four children, three who are married and a little 7-year-old. She worked as a cleaner for a doctor's office ever since she was little, but when she divorced she needed to increase her income. So she started selling candy, but it was still not enough. She has sold stuffed animals and toys for the past three years and that has worked out better.

Now Juana is requesting a loan of $500, which she plans to repay within six months, to purchase supplies. With your help, Juana will be able to make headway.

Translated from Spanish by Marty Greenstein, Kiva volunteer

Juana es divorciada tiene 4 hijos, tres hijas casadas y uno pequeño de 7 años.
Ella trabaja con una doctora haciendole el aseo, desde que era jovencita, pero cuando se divorcio, necesitaba aumentar sus ingresos por lo que empezo a vender dulces pero no le dejaba suficientes ingresos, ahora vende muñecos de peluche y blancos desde hace 3 años, actividad que le reditúa mejor.

Ahora ella necesita un préstamo por US $500 que pagara en 6 meses para comprar mercancía. Con tu apoyo Juana saldrá adelante.
