Felicidad's story

Felicidad lives in her own home in the Las Lomas neighborhood of the city of La Paz. She is married and has 4 children who are all married. Her husband works as a public transportation driver with his minibus, and in the back of her house, Felicidad has a home-based restaurant where she sells meals every day. They have been clients of IMPRO for more than 3 years, and they have taken out about 10 loans over this time. They have also had 3 loans funded by Kiva.

The loan that she requests now is to buy potatoes, noodles and rice at wholesale to reduce her costs, and also to buy meat, cooking oil and vegetables.

Felicidad is pleased with her relationship with IMPRO and with Kiva, since it reduces the cost of her credit, and with her good character and reputation she can qualify to access a new loan.
