Betty's story

Betty is single and has a son who is school-aged. She lives with her in-laws, occupying two rooms. The home is located in the Llojeta neighborhood of the city of La Paz.

She currently works for a private company for more than 8 hours a day, and she also has a hardware store where she also sells automotive parts and motor oil. This way she can cover her expenses for food, education and basic services for her family.

She needs a loan to increase her capital so that she can buy merchandise such as: motor oil, brakes, transmission parts and other automotive parts for her store. This way she will be able to offer a greater variety of products and increase her income.

Betty's dream is to acquire a house through an "anticretico" (lease arrangement) so that she can have more comfort and improve her quality of life.

This is the 10th time that Betty has requested a loan with IMPRO, and the 7th time she has borrowed through Kiva.
