A loan of $1,400 helped to replace the engine of one of her vehicles, and to do maintenance.

Jeanette's story

Jeannette is single and has two school-aged children. They live in two rented rooms in the San Martín area of the city of La Paz.

Currently, she has income from her two vehicles, from which she earns a daily rent. She is the only one who covers her family's expenses for rent, education, food and payment of basic services.

She needs the loan for maintaining one of her vehicles, as she wishes to replace the engine, and this way improve her income for supporting her family.

Jeannette's dream is to acquire a house through an "anticrético" (the occupant makes a lump-sum payment to the owner up front, as a loan in return for housing. The owner must repay it after a specified period, usually two years). This is in order to save on rent, and also to provide her children with more comfort and improve their quality of life.

This is the sixth time she is applying for a loan with IMPRO, and the fourth time with Kiva.
