Janet Yolanda's story

Janet is a 25-year-old woman, single, and lives in the city of Pisco with her parents and siblings. She is a very happy, hardworking and enthusiastic person who has a great desire to succeed. Sadly, because of a lack of economic resources and her need to work to support her parents, Janet was not able to study for the nursing degree she wanted, but she would have liked to have been able to do it very much. In her free time, she likes to play sports, and on some occasions, she cooks a very tasty rice with duck to share with her family.

With much effort, dedication and help from her mother, Janet began her small business selling groceries and drinks. Every day, she starts work early in the morning. She can serve approximately 25 customers, and she believes that things are going well due to her good service. Janet is very grateful for Kiva lenders, because the help given will allow her to buy merchandise for her business, such as rice, sugar, oil, milk, mixed vegetables, noodles, soft drinks, among other things. In this way, she will have a better-stocked business with which she hopes to be able to raise her sales and increase her income. This will help her a lot to be able to grow her business, and she hopes to be able to achieve her great dream of having her own house and her own premises for developing her business.
