Maruja's story

Maruja is divorced and has two children who are in elementary school. They live at her parents' house where they occupy one small room with adobe walls and a dirt floor. The house is located in the District of San Isidro in the city of El Alto.

Maruja currently sells vehicle accessories. For this reason, she is requesting a loan in order to increase her capital for buying oil, floor mats, diesel fuel, silicone (for polishing tires), and everything else that is used on automobiles. Since this is her only source of income for supporting her children, Maruja works more than 10 hours. This enables her to pay for expenses, such as food and education for her two children.

Maruja dreams of having a house of her own so that she can provide greater comfort for her two children and improve their quality of life. This is the second time she has worked with IMPRO, but the first time with Kiva.
