A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a computer.


Andrea's story

Andrea is single and has no children. She lives in a rented room in the north part of the city of La Paz. She is currently studying to become a secretary at night and during the day works as a secretary in a private firm since she has to pay rental, educational and food costs. She needs the loan to buy a computer that will be very useful in her studies and at work because the salary she earns working more than 8 hours daily isn’t sufficient to do so.

Andrea’s dream is to improve her income and to acquire a house under the ‘anticrético’ modality [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] to save on rental costs and also to improve her quality of life. This is the first time she’s asked for credit from IMPRO and KIVA.
