A loan of $600 helped to buy merchandise for her store.


Cintya's story

Cintya is single and is waiting for the arrival of her baby. She lives at her parents’ house which consists of only one room. The house is located in the District of Chamaco Chico in the city of La Paz. Cintya currently generates income by selling household goods from a grocery store where she works more than 12 hours a day. Through her work, she is able to pay for food, education, and basic services for her family. The store is operating well, but now she is running a little low on products. The loan she is requesting will be used to buy merchandise for her store such as rice, sugar, and noodles in bulk. She wants to maintain a level of income that will allow her to become independent and provide more comforts for her son so that they both can have a better quality of life. Cintya dreams of expanding her store, keeping it well-stocked, and eventually converting it into a small supermarket. This is the third time she has worked with IMPRO and Kiva.
