A loan of $400 helped to buy merchandise (oil, eggs, rice, and flour) for her grocery store.

Teresa's story

Teresa rents where she lives in the Villa Nuevo Potosí zone in the city of La Paz. She is single, and she has a daughter whom she supports.

Teresa sells groceries in a store that her mother left her. She supports her daughter and covers all of their necessities with the income from the store.

She will use the loan to buy oil, eggs, rice, and flour to stock her store and sell to her customers.

She is a client of Impro, and she pays very well. Her character and reputation qualify her for a loan.
