Margarita's story

Margarita’s married and has three children two of which are already independent; only one still lives with her and is school age. They live in her own three-room house located in the city of La Paz’s Tacagua zone.

She earns income at present working as a street fruit vendor for more than 8 hours daily; she does not have a permanent sales stand. She also gets income from her husband who works in construction. They both contribute towards food, school and basic utility costs for the family.

She requests the loan to build two rooms at home because she wants to have more comfort and improve her quality of life. She used previous loan granted through Kiva to improve her living condition and now she can improve it still more. Margarita’s dream is to increase working capital and improve income. This is her 17th loan request to IMPRO and second to KIVA.
