A loan of $600 helped purchase of colored fabric, thread, and lining for folk clothing.


Carmelo's story

Carmelo is a milk producer who markets to the PIL S.A. business. His wife is a small farmer, and they also have a small embroidery of folk clothing that they rent for different events. Both are in their old age, and were thus discriminated against in other institutions and denied the opportunity to be offered a loan. They live in the Villandrani community of the Los Andes Province, two and a half hours from the city of El Alto. The loan will serve to purchase raw materials (colored fabric, thread, lining, etc.) to be able to make a greater quantity of folk clothing. It's their third loan with IMPRO; their disciplined payment will allow them to access another loan.
