A loan of $1,150 helped to make improvements to the part of her house where her stationary store is located.

Johana Del Carmen's story

This young woman lives in Nueva Guinea. She is married and the mother of a 13 year-old son, who is in secondary school. Johana is a professional and works in a local store. She has worked for 18 years. She is a sales advisor, which is how she makes her income to raise her son. She also has a small stationary store, which also generates income. She is a determined and very hardworking woman.

She is requesting her first loan with the support of Kiva, in order to make some improvements to the part of her house where she has her business.

Her dream is for her business to grow and grow and for her son never to go hungry.
