A loan of $800 helped to buy pots, chairs, tables, dishes, etc. to equip a restaurant.

Clotilde's story

Clotilde is single and has five children three of which are independent. She lives in her own, two-bedroom house with adobe walls and cement floor located in the city of La Paz’s Alto San Pedro zone.

Clotilde works more than 8 hours daily as a cook preparing food to sell at her doorstep because she does not have a restaurant and with the little she earns she must cover her family’s food and basic utility costs.

She needs the loan to buy pots, tables, chairs, dishes, cutlery, etc. to set up a restaurant. Clotilde’s dream is to improve her income and build a spacious restaurant to welcome more customers. This is her sixth loan request to IMPRO and first to KIVA.
