A loan of $1,000 helped to pay for maintenance of the vehicle her husband drives in order to get more income to support the family.


Betty's story

Betty has a son and lives with her husband. He works as a driver, and he has his own vehicle.

She needs the loan for maintenance of the vehicle. It is the only business activity they have to get income to support their family.

Betty lives in “anticredtico” (Anticretico is a transaction not available in the U.S. whereby a property owner requests a "loan" from you in exchange for housing, which must be paid back to you at the end of your contract. If your loan is not repaid, the property owner loses the property to you) in the Obispo Bosque zone of the city of La Paz.

This is the 12th time she has worked with IMPRO, and the fifth time she has worked with Kiva.
