A loan of $600 helped to buy a computer for her children's studies.

Benedicta's story

Benedicta is married and has four children who are of school age. They live in their own home where they occupy one small room with brick walls. The house is located in the February 16th District in the city of El Alto.

Benedicta only has an elementary school education. She currently earns income by working more than 10 hours a day as a housekeeper at a private residence. This enables her to cover the cost of food and basic services for her family. For this reason, she is requesting a loan so that she can buy a computer to help with her children’s studies. Such an item will be useful for their daily homework, but she is not able to buy one with the little that she earns.

Benedicta dreams of improving her income so that she can cover her children’s educational expenses and provide them with a better quality of life. This is the first time she has requested a loan from IMPRO and Kiva.
