Juliana Antonia
Juliana Antonia, 58, has been selling fried fast-food at home since she was let go from her job as a caretaker due to personnel cuts in a private firm; she sells her customers delicious tacos, enchiladas, fried plantain and soft-drinks where the custom is for residents to buy these items for dinner. She’s been in this business for four years and it has made it possible for her to support her children alone without any help from their father and to provide them with better living conditions.

She’s asking for this loan to buy plantain, fruit, meat, chicken, oil and snacks with the objective of offering greater variety of food to her customers thus attracting them. She thanks Kiva and Ceprodel for the support they provide small merchants who need this capital to stay in business.
