A loan of $400 helped to buy stucco and paint to finish remodling the room where she lives.


Silvia's story

Silvia is single and does not have children. She lives in her parents' house in a room made of adobe with dirt floors. The house is located in teh 23 de Marzo aera of the city of El Alto. Silvia works as an employee of a transportation company in the Rió Seco of the city of El Alto. She studied and finished secondary school and she currently works more than eight hours per day as she needs to make an income to cover food costs and basic services for her family. She needs this loan to purchase materials like stucco and paint to finish remodeling her room as the walls are made of adobe and she wants a better quality of life. Silvia's dream is to improve her income so that she can become independent and have more comfort. This is the second time she has worked with IMPRO and the first time with Kiva.
