A loan of $850 helped to invest in vehicle refurbishment.


Marisol's story

Marisal has her food stall selling tucumanas and rellenos on Indaburo street in the central part of the city of La Paz. Tucumanas are meat empanadas that are accompanied by a peanut sauce and salad, and rellenos are made of mashed potato and minced meat, also accompanied by a salad. She has worked in this for a year and a half. Her husband has a vehicle, which is currently in a panel beater shop for refurbishment, so he is working as a salaried driver with another vehicle. She has two young children that her sister-in-law watches during the morning, since they both work. She and her husband care for them in the afternoon. They live in their in-laws home and are hard workers. This loan will be invested in the vehicle to pay their balance and reclaim it from the panel beater. She is very grateful to Emprender and Kiva for the trust given by providing this loan.
