A loan of $500 helped pay her son's university tuition.

Marcia's story

Ms. Marcia is an employee of the phone company, Cotel, an organization that provides housing for its workers. She does not have to pay rent and lives with her entire family. She works as a courier and also cleans. In addition, she sells food to her fellow employees to increase her income. The loan she is requesting will be used to pay for her eldest son's studies. He is finishing his degree in systems engineering. She is not a member of IMPRO (Kiva Field Partner), but her high moral character has allowed her a line of credit. Additionally, the cash flow will allow her to make monthly payments.
