A loan of $600 helped to buy a computer for her phychology classes.

Sara's story

Sara is single and has no children. She lives in a rented house occupying a single room with brick walls and a dirt floor located in the city of El Alto’s Villa Exaltación zone. She currently works as a file clerk in a private firm for more than 8 hours daily and with the income she earns is able to pay for food, schooling and rent. She needs the loan to buy a computer because it would be of much help to her in her classes.

Sara’s dream is to complete her studies because she's studying psychology and is in the fourth year of her career and to improve her income so that later on she can acquire a house using the ‘anticrético’ modality to save on rent costs and thus improve her quality of life. [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]. This is the second time she’s asked for an IMPRO and KIVA loan.
