Juana lives in her own home with her family and operates a small grocery store, an Internet cafe, and a billiards game room in her home. She will use the financing to buy stock and Christmas items to sell during this Christmas season. She is a very good client, therefore, she received a very good interest rate on her Kiva loan. The Institution is well-acquainted with her and considers her to be a very responsible client; she has been with us since the beginning.
