A loan of $300 helped to buy potatoes, “chuño” (freeze-dried potatoes), and fish.

Rufina's story

Sra. Rufina sells food, particularly fish soup, while her husband works as a masonry assistant. Both of these combined activities are the source of income by which they have to maintain their family. Rufina needs this loan to buy potatoes, “chuño” (freeze-dried potatoes), and fish since these are the main ingredients used in preparing her fish soup. She is married and has no children. Rufina lives in her own home in the District of San Martin in the city of La Paz.

This is the first time she has requested a loan from IMPRO and through Kiva.
