A loan of $800 helped to buy merchandise.


Rossi's story

Rossi is divorced and has four children studying in the university. Three of them are already independent and only the youngest still lives at home with her in a rented house occupying two rooms. The house is located in the city of La Paz’s Alto San Pedro zone. She currently earns income because she sells spices for food from place to place and for more than ten hours daily since she must cover food, education and basic utility payments for her family. She needs the loan to buy merchandise because she wants to expand it and improve her income. Rossi’s dream is to acquire a house in the ‘anticrético’ modality [a transaction whereby a property owner requests a "loan" from you in exchange for housing, which must be paid back to you at the end of your contract. If your loan is not repaid, the property owner could lose the property to you] and to have a store so that she doesn’t have to do it from place to place anymore since that’s quite demanding. This is the third time she’s asked for an IMPRO loan and first with KIVA.
