Ana Maria's story

Ana Maria is not married. She lives with the father of her 2 school-aged boys. She lives in her own house, which has 4 rooms: a bedroom, kitchen, bathroom, and a room that still needs some final work which will be the living room. The house is made of brick, with cement and wood floors. It is located in the "6 de Marzo" neighborhood of the city of El Alto.

Ana Maria currently works as a teacher in a rural area. This school is located in the Villandrani area, and the road there is partly paved and partly made of dirt. She works each weekday, and on the weekends she gives private classes to group of children who want to strengthen their skills and in this way increase their incomes. Her husband also teaches in a rural area, currently in the Poma Maya region of Omasuyos province. They both contribute to pay for services, food and clothing, and to pay off their debt.

Ana Maria needs a loan to buy stucco and interior paints, so that she can plaster and stucco the walls; she also wants to put in doors and windows. This way, she will improve her family's living conditions.

Ana Maria's dream is to be able to finish the construction of her rooms, so that she could have a room for each of her children. This way, they could have a better quality of life.

This is the first time that Ana Maria has requested a loan jointly from IMPRO and KIVA.
