A loan of $750 helped to purchase wholesale fish.

Juana's story

With her previous Kiva loan, Juana bought men’s sweaters, bed sheet sets and towels, and also invested in buying a large quantity of seafood. She was able to sell everything and made a little more income than usual.

Now Juana is gearing up for Easter and needs lots of seafood, as it’s the time of year her sales go up. This is because the community celebrates its closeness to Jesus with orations and sacrifices, and keeping with tradition means giving up beef, so people consume more of what Juana sells. Her message to the Kiva lenders is the following: “Thank you for the help I’ve received so far and may God bless you so you continue to help more people.”
