Carmen's story

Carmen is single and has no children. She lives in an anticrético [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] house occupying two bedrooms. The house is located in the north part of La Paz in the Agua de la Vida neighborhood.

She earns income at present selling all types of CDs and DVDs, be they music or film because Carmen has a sales stand downtown and what she earns by working more than 8 hours per day is able to cover her food and basic utility costs. She needs the loan to buy CDs and DVDs in large amounts to improve income because she wants to increase her merchandise.

Carmen’s dream is to own a house because she wants to have more comfort and improve her quality of life. This is the first time she’s requested an IMPRO and KIVA loan.
