A loan of $500 helped to buy DVDs, CDs and musical videos at wholesale to sell to her customers.

Brigida's story

Brigida is married and has 2 children, one of whom is school-aged. Her husband works in public transportation, driving one of the inter-departmental (long distance) routes in La Paz. Brigida lives with her family in two rooms in the house of her in-laws. The home is located in the neighborhood of Illimani in the city of El Alto. She is currently earning an income from the sale of DVDs, CDs, and musical videos; she works more than 8 hours a day at her sales post. She is requesting a loan to acquire merchandise (DVDs, CDs and videos) in bulk at wholesale, so that she can offer her customers a greater variety of products and in this way increase her income.

Brigida's dream is to have a store and become a wholesale distributor.

This is the second time that she has requested a loan from IMPRO, and the first time from Kiva.
