A loan of $375 helped to make repairs to her home (plaster the walls and fix the roof).


Juana Elvira's story

Juana is an enterprising woman. She is 34 years old, a single mother and lives in Santiago with her family. She has 2 children for whom she always has fought, despite being a single mother and without anyone's support, to offer them a better quality of life. Since she was 14 years old, she has worked as a worker on a large farm in the area, which is going very well for her since she is a very responsible, hard-working, and honest person with a strong desire to improve herself. Juana is very grateful to the Kiva lenders because, with the support they have offered her, she will be able to remodel her home such as plastering the walls and fixing the roof so that her family can feel comfortable and safe in their home.
