A loan of $400 helped working capital.


Juana Hermelinda's story

Mrs. Juana T. is 39 years old, is married, and lives with her husband and her three children in the Xantún canton, in Totonicapán, Guatemala. She and her husband have made traditional aprons at home for eight years.

Her customers' demands have increased, but Juana's economic conditions have not kept pace and she finds it difficult to increase her working capital. This is why she has come to Kiva partner Asociación ASDIR - to request a loan to buy raw materials and in that way, increase her sales. She hopes to be able to support her children and provide them with better living conditions.
