The loan she is requesting is to purchase cement, sand, and plaster to renovate her bathroom and the walls of her house and therefore improve the quality of life for herself and her children.
Celestina's dream is to finish the construction on her house. This is her 10th loan she is requesting from IMPRO and her first loan with Kiva.
Celestina atiende su tienda más de 8 horas al día, para cubrir sus gastos de alimentación, luz, agua, educación de sus hijos y otros.
El crédito lo requiere para la compra de cemento, arena, estuco, para refacción de un baño y paredes de su vivienda y así mejorar la calidad de vida de ella y sus hijos.
El sueño de Celestina es terminar de construir su casa.
Es la décima vez que solicita un crédito con IMPRO y la primera con Kiva.
About IMPROIMPRO is a small non-profit organization that has been offering micro credit to the working poor in the Bolivian cities of La Paz and El Alto since 1995. IMPRO’s goal is to fight poverty by offering loans to small business owners who cannot access credit through the regular banking system due to a lack of guarantees or collateral.
To ensure that everyone has access to credit, IMPRO maintains a low interest rate by minimizing operational costs. IMPRO’s partnership with Kiva, which began in 2007, has allowed IMPRO to expand its services while maintaining these low interest rates.
About Housing Loans
Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
