A loan of $500 helped to pay the university costs for an insurance course.


Doris's story

Doris is divorced, and she has two school age children. They live in an ‘anticrético’ [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] house. They occupy three rooms of the house, which is in the Chacaltaya area of the city of La Paz.

She currently works for a private insurance company. She also works as a cosmetic sales promoter for over ten hours a day. She does this because she needs to cover the expenses for education, food, and basic services.

The loan that she needs is for the university costs for an insurance course, which is a work requirement. She does not have enough to pay for this with what she earns.

Her dream is to improve her income in order to be able to pay for her children’s university studies. She does not have other income.

This is the third time she has worked with IMPRO and the second time with Kiva.
