Juana María's story

Juana María is 47 years old, is married and lives with her husband and three children in the center of the Lagunas town, a small community located on the seashore. It belongs to the district of the same name and is located more than an hour away from the city of Chiclayo.

Juana for more than two years has sold basic household goods and groceries in a small grocery store in her home. There she offers her neighbors different products for daily use that are usually difficult to find due to their distance from other cities. This has maD. her business very well received and she always works hard to bring her customers the best care and quality products. The income that she receives from her job she uses to help her husband take care of the family finances.

Juana wishes to have more merchandize to be able to expand her business and sales and she wants to increase income to help her family get ahead. To meet her goal she has sought Edpyme Alternativa (Kiva’s field partner) to help for a loan of 1000 nuevos soles.
