Juana's story

Juana is a 62-year-old woman; she is a widow. She is also a mother, all of her children are now grown up adults who have families of their own.

Juana sees a business opportunity in every situation. The last time she saw one, she applied to a loan at Kubo and Kiva, she was able to acquire a car that she would later rent as a taxi. This has been working out well.

In order to make a living, Juana sells underwear and socks in a street market.

She wants to increase her underwear stock in order to meet the increasing demand. To do so, she is applying for a 15,000 MXN loan.
