Jenny Jannet's story

Jenny is 27 years old and lives with her husband. They have two daughters, one six years old and the other six months old. She is a loving mother who fights for her children. Her elder daughter was born with a disability, so she was unable to finish her studies and instead took care of her daughter. She and her husband work hard to give their daughters a good life that is full of love. Her house is in Ica, an agricultural city with a warm, pleasant climate.

Every day Jenny puts a lot of enthusiasm into her little grocery shop, which allows her to help her husband with the household expenses and the cost of their daughter's health care. She gets up to 20 customers a day, and she thinks her business is going well because she's friendly with the customers and really wants to make it work.

Jenny is very grateful to Kiva's lenders, who have helped her buy merchandise for her business, including rice, sugar, pasta, jam, and other products that have allowed her to offer her customers a wider variety and to increase her earnings. That way, she can keep working every day to make her biggest dream—“to be able to give my daughters a better life and education and eventually open a minimarket”—come true.
