A loan of $1,200 helped to repair her house.

Mirtha's story

Mirtha is married and has fice children, three of which are are school age. They live in their own house occupying four rooms. The house is located in the city of La Paz’s Alto Llojeta zone.

She currently gets income from working as a doctor for over six hours a day. Sometimes she covers the all night shift because she needs to cover her family’s expenses for food, education, and basic services. The family also has income from her husband, a carpenter.

The loan that she needs is to repair her house. The walls are very damaged, and she wants to change the plywood sheets on the roof. She also wants to fix the ceilings because when it rains lots of water gets in.

Mirtha’s dream is to build more rooms and to make her family more comfortable. This way she would improve their quality of life.

This is the second time she has requested a loan with IMPRO and the second with Kiva.
