Julia is a 58-year-old married woman. She is part of the “Unidos para el Truinfo” community bank, a name that translates to “United for Triumph”. She and her husband have three adult children who all have families of their own and no longer live with their parents. Julia has supported herself and her family for years working in the candle business. She sells candles in a shop that she has owned and operated for over fifteen years. Julia is asking for a Kiva loan to buy materials to make candles so that she can increase her revenue. She is appreciative of and thankful for the loan, and promises to pay the monthly payments on time.
