A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a photocopier for her business of processing documents.

Julieta's story

Julieta has one child, and she lives in a house under the “anticrético” mode [transaction whereby a property owner requests a "loan" from you in exchange for housing, which must be paid back to you at the end of your contract. If your loan is not repaid, the property owner loses the property to you]. She occupies one room with fine finishing touches and a wood floor. She also has a kitchen, bathroom, dining room, and living room. The house is located in the Escobar Uria area of the city of La Paz.

Julieta works in an independent way processing paperwork for over eight hours a day. She does this because she is the only one who covers the expenses for water, electricity, rent, and food for her family.

She needs the loan to buy a photocopier, which is much needed in the work she does. This way she will save this expense, which is an important cost in her business.

Julieta’s dream is to improve her income in order to improve her quality of life. This is the first time with IMPRO and the first with Kiva.
