A loan of $300 helped to buy a greater quantity of newspapers to sell to the public.


Elizabeth's story

Elizabeth is married and has two school age children. They live in her parent’s house, occupying one small room with a dirt floor. The house is in Villa Fátima in the city of La Paz. She currently sells newspapers. She starts on the street during the very early hours, and she withstands the temperature changes because she does not have a fixed stand. She works for over six hours because she needs to cover the family’s food expenses. The loan that she needs is to get a larger quantity of newspapers from the companies that publish them. This way she will improve her income. Elizabeth’s dream is to have her own house in order to make her family more comfortable and to have a better quality of life. This is the first time she has worked with IMPRO and the first time with Kiva.
