Juana Gregoria's story

Juana Gregoria is 50 years old, married and has grown-up, independent children. She is originally from the department of Leon, Nicaragua, which is located in the western part of the country. She is a hardworking and responsible women who has run a mill service out of her home for the past 13 years. She started the business out of necessity to have a source of income to support the household finances. She is requesting the loan to have working capital and to perform maintenance on her mills, like changing the blades and grease and paint them. In this way she can provide a better service to her customers. Juana is grateful for the help provided by Kiva lenders to people of scant resources in poor countries like Nicaragua so they have a means to dignified work.
