Mayadevi's story

Mayadevi is single, and she does not have children. She lives in her parents’ house, occupying only one room. The house is in the Sopocachi area of the city of La Paz.

She is currently employed by a private company, and she works for over eight hours a day. She studies photography in the evenings. She needs the loan to buy photography materials (a camera and photography books) because she wishes to finish her studies. She does not earn enough to buy these things because she needs to cover the expenses for food and basic services.

Mayadevi’s dream is to improve her income and to have her own photography studio. She wants to do this in order to later become independent.

This is the first time that she has worked with IMPRO and Kiva.
