A loan of $450 helped to buy paint, tile and other supplies to redo the bathroom and kitchen at home.

Norah's story

Norah’s a widow and has two daughters who are already independent. She lives in her own, one-bedroom house located in the city of La Paz’s Sopocachi zone. She’s currently employed as a secretary in a public firm and works more than 8 hours daily because she must cover her food and basic utility costs.

She needs the loan to redo her bathroom and kitchen because the dampness has damaged them. She will buy paint and tile for said renewal. Norah’s dream is to add more bedrooms so that her daughters can move in with her since she currently lives alone. This is her second IMPRO loan request and first with KIVA.
