Martha's story

Martha’s married and has two children who are attending secondary school. They all live in her two-bedroom house located in the city of La Paz’s Irpavi zone.

She only completed secondary school and currently earns income from her grocery store. She works more than 12 hours daily because she must cover education, food and basic utility costs for her family which is why she’s requesting the loan; she needs to increase capital purchasing more products to sell and improve her income.

Martha’s dream is to add more rooms to increase family comfort and also to enlarge the business to improve income and quality of life. This is the 8th time she’s worked with IMPRO and second time with KIVA.
