A loan of $1,000 helped to buy building materials and supplies to refurbish her home and to finish building a room.

Isabel's story

Isabel lives in the Miraflores sector of La Paz in her own house.

She sells Api (a hot infusion made from purple corn flour) with buñuelos (deep-fried flour tortillas sprinkled with sugar and cinnamon) and pastries. Her husband is a laborer in the fields. She has seven children one of whom is still in her care.

This is her 4th loan request at Impro and the fourth that requires Kiva help.

Her credit history is grade 1, that is, she has a good repayment history.

The loan will be used to refurbish her home (purchase plaster and paint to add the finishing touches to a room).

The loan will make it possible for her to improve her living conditions and her surroundings.
