A loan of $1,200 helped to buy bricks, cement, and sand in order to build classrooms for a contract she has together with an architect.

Jimena's story

Jimena is single, and she lives with her two children in her parents’ house. They only occupy two small rooms. The house is located in the Villa Abaroa area in the city of La Paz.

She currently works as a supervisor of contracts for over eight hours a day. With the little she earns she needs to cover the food, educational, and medical expenses. She does not have insurance.

She is requesting the loan to buy bricks, cement, and sand in order to build classrooms. She is now working with an architect, and they are paid when the work is finished.

Jimena’s dream is to improve her income and to be able to become independent. She wishes to do this in order to make her family more comfortable. She has no other income to support her children.

This is the second time she has worked with IMPRO and Kiva.
