A loan of $400 helped to purchase bricks, cement, and sand to build an additional room in her parent's home.

Delma's story

Delma’s married and has two, school age children. They live in her parents’ house occupying two bedrooms. The house is located in the city of La Paz’s Alto Chijini zone. She’s currently employed as a Secretary and works more than 8 hours daily since she must help with her family’s food, education and basic utility costs.

She needs the loan to add a bedroom to her parents’ house to have more comfort and improve her quality of life. To do so, she will buy bricks, cement, sand, rebar and other supplies as well as pay the builders. Delma’s dream is to improve her income so she can move into a house under the ‘anticrético’ modality [transaction whereby a property owner requests a "loan" from you in exchange for housing, which must be paid back to you at the end of your contract. If your loan is not repaid, the property owner could lose the property to you] to provide her children with more comfort. This is her first loan request to both Impro and Kiva.
