A loan of $600 helped to buy more merchandise for her beauty products business and to pay her son's university tuition.


Emma's story

Ms. Emma lives in her mother-in-law's house in the Alto Sopocachi zone of the city of La Paz. She is married and her husband is a retired pensioner.

In order to help her family, she sells products from Avon, Essika, and Yanbal. She earns income that helps cover their household expenses.

She will use this loan to increase her capital going into the Christmas season and to have more products available for her year-end sales. She will use $200 USD for this purpose and will use the remaining $400 USD to pay her son's tuition, room and board at the Univalle University.

This is her first time coming to Impro to request a loan, but she qualifies to obtain one for this purpose.
