Juana Maria's story

Señora Juana Maria M. is 39 years old and lives in the Villa Reconiliación neighborhood of the 6th district of Managua. Her life companion works as a conductor and helps with the necessities of the house. She has 2 daughters of school age (since the previous loan from Kiva, one of her children passed away) Señora Juana Maria has a store in her house, where she offers basic products for the home. She gets most of her clientele from her local area. She started the business fifteen years ago with her own capital and very little inventory. Her greatest wish is to see her business grow to give better attention to her clients. Therefore she requests this loan to invest in the purchase of basic consumer goods and to be able to expand the diversity of her offerings.
