A loan of $275 helped to build an enclosure for her guinea pigs.

Johana Esmix's story

Young Johana is 20 years old. She is single and lives in the city of Imperial with her parents and siblings. She is a very friendly, hard-working and enthusiastic person, with a great desire to move ahead. Thanks to her efforts and the support of her parents, Johana was able to study confectionery. In her spare time she likes to prepare delicious desserts to share with her family.

With her own initiative and a lot of determination and dedication, Johana has now been working as a field labourer for two years at a farm in her city. She works every day from early in the morning for around eight hours. In addition she has a small business raising and selling guinea pigs.

Johana is very grateful to Kiva lenders because thanks to the support provided she will be able to buy straw, plastic, wire-mesh, a feeding-trough and other items to build a small enclosure for her guinea pigs. So, she will continue to work and put in the effort to achieve her grand dream of studying to become a secretary and so prosper.
