A loan of $400 helped to build a cistern and water tank.

Janeth Vannessa's story

Janneth,19, lives with her parents and siblings in the city of Ica, in the Parcona district. She is a very friendly, hard working and enthusiastic person who wishes hard to succeed.

Unfortunately due to a lack of economic resources and because she has to work to support her family, Janneth has not been able to study Business Administration.

In her free time she likes to watch TV and sometimes she cooks a delicious baked chicken to share with her family.

By her own initiative and with much effort and dedication, Janneth has a small business selling beauty products such as cosmetics, creams, perfumes etc.

She works every day for approximately ten hours and believes she is doing well thanks to a variety in her products and the good service she provides her clients.

Janneth is very thankful to the Kiva lenders. Thanks to the help given she can build a cistern and water tank in her home. This way Janneth can count on a system that will bring her and her family water at any time of the day.

Janneth will keep working and striving towards her big dream of being able to go to college.
