Jiovanna Mirian's story

Ms. Jiovanna lives in her father-in-law's home and has a neighborhood grocery store which she's had for five years and a small beauty salon. She lives with her three children and receives support from her partner infrequently since he works in the province and does not get home much. With this business she supports the household on her own.

She needs the loan to stock her store with groceries and improve her income. The area where she sells and lives is semi-urban. The zone is largely commercial as there are various buildings around the area. This is the only neighborhood grocery store in the area and she gets a lot of sales, and so she wishes to stock her shop.

She is grateful for the opportunity she is being given.
