Juana Verenisse's story

Juana, 18, is a single young woman living with her parents and siblings in the city of Chincha. Despite being so young, she’s a kind, hardworking, enthusiastic person who very much wants to improve. Unfortunately, because she needed to work to help support her family and cover her expenses, she’s been unable to study a professional career but dreams with being able to do so someday. In her free time she enjoys watching different movies and sometimes cooks a delicious “Arroz Chaufa” [Chinese-style fried rice] to share with her family. Juana works very diligently and enthusiastically as a cashier in a local cafeteria. She heads to work every day and believes that she does well because of her good work habits and the kind customer service she provides. Juana is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the help they give her she will be able to add a room to her house because her house is currently built with matting and this way she’ll be able to have said room so that her family and she can have better security and wellbeing. Juana will thus continue working and striving to reach her great dream of becoming a good professional. She hopes to get ahead with her family.
