Juana Mercedes's story

Juana is a Kiva borrower. She is 63 years old. A humble lady originally from León, she is married, and the mother of 4 children, all adults. She works as a merchant, selling clothing.

She is very happy because her first Kiva loan was a big help because she could supply her sales stock, buying the clothing most in demand by her customers such as blouses, pants, skirts, dresses, accessories for women, etc.

This is why today Juana is asking for her second loan in order to continue investing in the same way buying clothing such as blouses, skirts, dresses, pants, shorts, socks, and towels. Her objective is to increase her sales and obtain better income.
