Juana Rosario's story

Juana is a 37 year old woman. She lives in the city of Pisco with her two children, who she loves and who are her main reason for living. She is a very kind, hardworking, and enthusiastic person who dedicates all her strength to moving her family forward. Since she is both mother and father for her children, unfortunately because lack of economic resources and because of the need to work afford her expenses, she was not able to studying nursing as she hoped, but she wanted very much to do that. In her free time, she likes to play sports, and occasionally to cook a delicious rice with duck to share with her family.
By her own initiative, with much persistence and dedication, Juana works in her small business selling chicken soup. She works every day from the early hours of the morning and does so for about 12 hours. Juana is happy doing her work and believes that she does well because of her good flavoring as well as the kind treatment she gives her customers.
Juana is very grateful to the Kiva lenders, since thanks to the support they gave she will be able to purchase construction materials, such as cement, iron, paint, bricks, and others, which will serve well to be able to complete the finishings of her household. In this way Juana will be able to offer better security and well-being to her family. Thus, she will continue working and striving to achieve her big dream to give her children a good education and to see them become skilled professionals.
