Julissa's story

Julissa is 25 years old, she is a hardworking young woman, and above all, eager to get ahead. She lives next to her husband with who she has a child who is 5 years old. She loves him so much, and with her husband, they work hard to give him a decent life and above all, much love.

Her house is located in the city of Pucallpa, a city that is characterized by very hot weather and has beautiful flora and fauna. It is surrounded by beautiful landscapes where we can disconnect from the hustle and bustle of the city.

Due to their limited resources, she could only study through fifth grade of secondary education, but she would have liked very much to study to be a teacher.

Julissa works hard every day in her small business selling groceries. She works around 15 hours a day, because she opens her small business from early morning untill late night. She believes she is doing well in her business because she is very friendly with customers.

Julissa is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the help provided, she will buy merchandise for her business such as rice, sugar, and noodles, among others. Also, she will buy materials to build a roof outside her house such as corrugated, strips, and nails, among others. Doing so, she will have more variety of products to offer to her customers, and will also provide them with more comfort. That will allow her to improve her income and keep fighting to realize her greatest dream: "To give good education to his son and have a larger business".
