La Paz, Bolivia / Clothing Sales

A loan of $1,000 helped to buy women's clothes to resell.


Martha's story

Martha is divorced and has two children who are independent. She lives in her own house, two-bedroom house located in the city of La Paz’s Bolonia zone.

She earns income selling women’s clothing. She works more than 8 hours daily selling from place to place since she does not have a permanent stand. What she earns she must use to cover her food, utilities and medical expenses since she does not have medical insurance. She needs the loan to buy more women’s clothing to sell for cash and on credit to improve her income.

Martha’s dream is to increase her income and to have a sales stand of her own to no longer have to wander the streets which is very demanding. This is the first time she’s asked for credit from IMPRO and KIVA.
