A loan of $300 helped to buy blanket-making supplies.


Micaela's story

Micaela’s married and has three children who are school age. They live in a house of their own occupying a single room with brick walls and dirt floor located in the city of El Alto’s Bautista Saavedra zone. She only went to elementary school and currently earns income working more than 12 hours making blankets to then sell in a store she has at home. She also sells dehydrated potato because she has to cover food, schooling and basic utility costs for her family. The loan she needs is to increase capital. She wants to buy materials needed to make blankets because what she earns is insufficient and she wants to increase her income. Micaela’s dream is to build more rooms to provide more comfort for her family and to improve their quality of life. This is her fourth loan request to IMPRO and first with KIVA.
