Paola Janhette's story

Paola is 28 years old and lives in the city of Pucallpa, which is a city located in the beautiful Peruvian jungle. It is known for its diverse flora and fauna as well as for the generosity and kindness of its people. When she has some free time, she loves to play volleyball with her neighbors and friends from her neighborhood. But above all, she likes to enjoy one of her favorite dishes which is the delicious ceviche.

Paola is the mother of a small five years old child who she loves very much and for who she strives every day in order to see him happy and with more opportunities than her. With much effort and enthusiasm, Paola works as a professor of primary education. She works about nine hours a day. She believes she is doing well because she has a lot of patience with children and because she loves what she does.

Paola is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the help they have given her, she will be able to buy shoes in bulk to start a small business. With it, she will have an extra income and thus keep fighting every day to make her biggest dream a reality:"To have her own home and give a good quality of life to her son".
