Johana is a 21 year old woman who is single and lives in the city of Chincha with her parents and siblings. She is a very friendly, hard working and enthusiastic person who has a great desire to get ahead. Thanks to her own efforts and her parents' support, Johana is studying Accounting. In her frree time she likes to listen to music and occasionally cooks a delicious "Arroz con pollo" (Rice with chicken) to share with her family.

Upon her own initiative and with much perseverance and dedication, Johana works in her small business selling clothing and cooking supplies. She works everyday from early in the morning and works about eight hours daily. She enjoys working and believes that it is going well for her because of her good prices and the friendly manner in which she treats her clients.

Jojana is very thankful for the Kiva lenders because thanks to the help brought forth, she will be able to purchase a display case and shelving for her business. In this way she will be able to display her products better, making them more attractive for her customers. Johana will continue working and putting in the effort to achieve her greatest dream of becoming a professional and working with a large business.
