Johana Lizeth's story

Johana, 21, is a hardworking and enthusiastic young woman. She's the mother of a three-year-old little girl whom she loves very much and for whom she would give her life to see her happy. Her home is located in the city of Imperial, known for its warm and welcoming climate. There's agriculture there, especially the production of bananas, corn, and other crops.

Johana is a fighter who with a lot of effort managed to start her business selling groceries a year ago. With this she's able to pay for the household expenses and especially get her little girl ahead. She works around 10 hours a day and can serve up to 20 customers. She believes that it's going well for her in her business because she has a great desire to get ahead. For this reason she works responsibly and with good customer service.

Johana is very grateful to the Kiva lenders because thanks to their help she'll be able to buy display cases and shelving for her business. This way her business will be better organized and eye-catching for the customers and she'll be able to improve her income.

She'll continue to fight every day to make her biggest dream come true: "To give her daughter a good education and to make her business grow."
