A loan of $900 helped to build a room.

Johana Maria's story

Johana is 33 years old and lives in the city of Ica, in the district of Parcona, with her little son, who she loves and who is the focus of her life. She is a very friendly, hard-working and enthusiastic person, who puts in a lot of effort to make life better for her family. Unfortunately due to lack of resources she was not able to study for the professional career in education which she wanted.

On her own initiative, she works as a farm worker at an agricultural farm in her city. She works every day for around 10 hours doing tasks such as harvesting, planting, watering and others. She likes working and thinks things are going well for her because of her determination and hard work.

Johana is very grateful to the Kiva lenders since with the help she gets she will be able to build a room with decent and hard-wearing materials for her son. This will enable her to give her family better security and wellbeing. Johana will continue to work hard to fulfil her biggest dream of seeing her son become a professional.
