Juana De La Concepcion's story

Juana de la Concepción a single older mother originally from Chinandega, with two daughters with one of them still under her care as she is disabled and attends a school for children with disabilities. She describes herself as being a hard-working and responsible woman with the desire to be successful. In her free time she likes to spend time with her daughter, giving her all her attention and enjoy with her delicious meals that she makes, or, they listen to music as her daughter responds positively to it. Unfortunately because of the lack of economic resources and the poverty in which she lives she was not able to finish her schooling as it was necessary to work at a young age to help with the household expenses. Thanks to her efforts and desire to succeed she has been able to support her daughters with the small grocery store located in her home, from which she sells consumer goods for the home such as: rice, beans, sugar, candy, detergent, clothing, shoes, cosmetics, clothing, bread, eggs, coffee, fruit, and other items. Juan opens her business very early and closes late, thus providing the best service to her customers. One of her dreams is being able to continue building her house, expanding it in order to have two separate businesses. The objective of this loan is to invest in her store, buying general merchandise as the demand has increased. Juana is very thankful for the support that Kiva investors offer to people of few economic resources.
