Juana Francisca's story

Juana is 61 years old. She is married and has three young grandchildren that she is responsible for. She is a native of Leon, a place that is located in the western region of the country. She is known for being hardworking and responsible with a desire for self-improvement. Unfortunately, due to a lack of financial resources, she was not able to attend school. She fights day-to-day to get her young grandchildren ahead since they depend on her.

Thanks to her efforts and desire to get ahead, she has a sewing business in her home where she makes clothing like skirts, dresses, pants, shorts, and bedding. She spends about eight hours a day working in her business.

The goal of this loan is to invest in the purchase of raw material to make clothing such as: patches, fabrics, thread, needles, spools, buttons, and zippers, so that in the near-future, she can improve her earnings. Juana is grateful for the help that the Kiva lenders have given to people of few means in poor countries like Nicaragua, so that they can have a dignified job.
