A loan of $800 helped to buy chili pepper at wholesale.


Simona's story

Simona is a chili pepper merchant. She travels throughout the country twice a month buying and selling this product. Her husband is a driver and also has a sound system that he uses to provide DJ services at social events. She’s asking for the loan to increase capital to buy a larger amount of chili pepper because it’s a product that she sells quite successfully.

Simona lives in a rented house located in the city of El Alto’s Villa Esperanza zone. She’s married and has three children. Simona has had a relationship with IMPRO since 2006 and the loans have helped her immensely to improve her and her family’s quality of life. This is the second time her loan is channeled through Kiva.
