A loan of $1,500 helped to purchase fruits.

Sirley's story

Sirley is married and has two children, one of whom is school aged. They live in her mother-in-law's house in three rooms with brick walls and dirt floors. The house is located in the Alto San Antonio area of the city of La Paz.

She currently works selling fruits on the sidewalk of a commercial street, dealing with weather changes in company of her baby, since she doesn't have anyone to leave him with. With the little she earns, she is able to cover the costs of food, education, and basic utilities for her family.

She is requesting this loan to increase her merchandise since this will improve her income and her quality of life. Sirley's dream is to have her own stall so that she does not have to suffer on the street, and later to obtain a pre-paid rental home to provide more comfort and security to her family.

This is the second time she has requested a loan with IMPRO and the first time with Kiva.
