A loan of $375 helped to maintain her arcade games.

Johana's story

Johana is 19 and lives with her husband and her little son in a house she inherited from her father-in-law. Thanks to the support of her parents and her husband, she was able to start up an entertainment business in her city's commercial district, where she spends her time serving the different people who come to play the arcade games she bought two years ago. She tells us that things are going very well as hers is the only business of its kind in the area. She would like to install a frozen drinks stand on the premises, which she thinks will be profitable. This is her first Kiva loan and she is very grateful for the financial support which will help her to get ahead. She promises to make her repayments in a timely manner. Johana will invest 1,000 soles on the maintenance of her arcade games so that they work without any problems.
