Juliana Elizabeth's story

Juliana is 23 years old, single, and lives in the city of Pisco with her parents and siblings. She is a very friendly, hard-working, enthusiastic person who has a great desire to improve herself. Unfortunately, owing to a lack of financial resources and the need to work in order to help her parents, Juliana was unable to study for a degree in accountancy as she would have liked to. In her free time, she likes supporting her mom with the housework and she sometimes cooks a delicious barbecue to share with her family.

Using her own initiative, Juliana works with determination and dedication in her own small business selling beauty products. She has a small space in her home where she sells cosmetics, creams, perfumes and other products. She works every day for approximately 8 hours. She feels happy in her work and believes that she is doing well because of the good prices she charges and the kind way she treats others.

Juliana is very grateful to Kiva lenders because, thanks to their help, she will be able to re-model her sales space. She would like to plaster and paint the walls. She would also like to buy a display case so that she can better display her products. Juliana will continue working hard to realize her biggest dream of owning her own home.
