A loan of $1,200 helped to buy a refrigerator and merchandise for her store.


Nicacia's story

Nicacia works cleaning houses and also has a small store where she sells meat and other daily use items; her husband’s an electrician. She needs the loan to increase working capital because she needs to buy a refrigerator to keep her meat in good condition and to be able to buy in larger amounts. She also needs to buy other merchandise to keep her store well stocked and thus help it grow.

She lives in her parents’ house in the city of La Paz’s Valle Hermoso zone. She’s married and has a son. This is the fifth time IMPRO has approved a loan for Nicacia and the second time it’s been channeled through KIVA.
