Juanita's story

Sra. Juanita lives in Libertad and is 42 years of age. Her business started out as a small store and thanks to God it has grown a little bit each day. She manages the store with her daughter.

Juanita begins her work in the mornings by purchasing fresh legumes to sell in her store. Her child works in her business throughout the entire day. Despite the fear of crime, the neighborhood where she lives is well-known. Juanita is separated and has two children. She says that her children help around the store whenever she becomes ill.

With this loan, Sra. Juanita will buy food products, legumes, and snacks. Her dream is to continue expanding her store since it is the only form of income. In addition, she also wants to open a minimarket.
