A loan of $500 helped to buy earrings, necklaces, rings, charms, and other items.


Sintya's story

Sintya is a single mother with a young daughter. She spends more than 10 hours a day selling and renting out gold jewelry. This is the only source of income by which she is able to support her daughter and pay for all expenses such as food and medical care. Sintya does not have health insurance. She does not have many comforts living at her parents' home in a room made of brick and with a dirt floor. The house is located in the District of Pura Pura in the city of La Paz.


The loan she is requesting will be used to buy more jewelry such as rings, earrings, necklaces, charms, and other items so that she can sell them later and increase her income. Sintya dreams of improving her quality of life and providing more comfort and security for her daughter. This is the first time she has worked with IMPRO and Kiva.
