Juana's story

Juana lives in Chile and sells home products from her house. She sells sheets, down bedding, flock-beds, and curtains. It has been six years since she began her business. With a loan and the support of Fondo Esperanza ("Hope Fund") she has been able to expand her business and clients. Now she sells clothes and toys. Juana likes to have her own business because it has permitted her to gain a better wage and be more independent. She feels comfortable with her work and enjoys it. With this loan Juana would like to expand her home and buy sheets, down bedding, flock-beds, and curtains. She is married and has an adult daughter.
