Julia tiene 38 años, tiene 3 hijos con quienes vive en su casa propia construida a base de adobe. Julia antes se dedicaba al cultivo de cacao y café pero para estar cerca a sus hijos decidió abrir un pequeño negocio en la puerta de su casa, donde actualmente vende caramelos, bebidas y otras cosas cerca de un colegio. Hace poco empezó a vender chupetes y otras bebidas heladas gracias a la compra de una refrigeradora con un préstamo anterior y para no descuidar unos terrenos que tiene decidió alquilarlo a otros agricultores y eso también le permite generar ingresos. Uno de sus principales objetivos es abrir una tienda de abarrotes para empezar a comercializar vivieres y obtener mejores ingresos para seguir apoyando económicamente a sus hijos para que ellos continúen estudiando. Ella considera que la educación de su familia es la mejor inversión que puede hacer. Este es su segundo crédito con Kiva, se siente contenta por el préstamo que obtuvo, ya que gracias a ello continuará con sus planes de trabajo.
