A loan of $200 helped to buy sheep and alpaca wool to make gloves.

Gabriela's story

Gabriela is 16 years old; she has had to work since she was very young when she quit school in order to cover household expenses when her father abandoned her family. Now she works as an artisan making gloves from alpaca and sheep wool, which are sold in Europe by a wholesaler. Gabriela lives with her mother and young siblings in a house located in the Villa Progreso Zone - Rio Seco in the city of El Alto. The loan will be used to buy raw materials in bulk, such as sheep and alpaca wool, which will allow her to produce a greater quantity of product. This is her first loan with Impro and her achievements to date make her eligible for approval of this loan.
