Janett Argentina's story

Janett is 38 years old, marred, and has a 17-year-old son who is studying at university. She is from Jinotepe, a place in the northern part of the country. She can be described as a responsible, hardworking person with a desire for self-improvement. In her free time she likes to enjoy her son's company. Sadly she could not go to school and found herself having to work from an early age, to help with the household expenses. Now, she fights day in and day out to be able to give her son a better future, and to achieve her greatest dream, which is to see him trained in a profession and formed into a good person.

Thanks to her hard work and her drive to get ahead, she has a small grocery business. It is a little store that sells consumable products, such as rice, beans, sugar, milk, bread, eggs, juices, and soft drinks, in small amounts. She works some 12 hours a day offering her products. The purpose of the loan is to invest in working capital and to stock her business for buying and selling foods, so that in the near future she can make more money. Janett is grateful to the Kiva investors for the help they offer to people of few means and in poor countries such as Nicaragua, so that they can have some measure of decent work.
