Juana Pastora's story

Juana, who is 45 years old, is well known for her profuse creativity. Children love her, not only for her great personality, but also because for the past eleven years she has been making them happy by making and selling custom pinatas. She was able to make many children happy with the loan she previously received from MiCrédito-Kiva, which was put to good use, because she was able to buy the paper and glue that she needed. It allowed her earnings to increase, which in turn enabled her to provide for her family and make some home improvements.

In telling us about her growth and showing us her products, she expressed how grateful she is for her previous loans. At this time Juana needs another loan, which she will invest in purchasing starch, newspaper, crepe paper, glue, and card stock. Having all the materials she needs will allow her to fill all the orders she is getting daily. Her daughter and husband help her with her work, which makes Juana want to continue being the pioneer woman of pinata sales. Her goals include continuing to improve her business and building a new room where she will be able to organize her materials better.
