A loan of $1,500 helped to pay for English classes to help her in her job and with communicating with people from abroad.

Veronica's story

Veronica is married, but separated from her husband. She has two young children and lives with them at her father-in-law’s house that consists of two finished rooms and a cement floor. The house is located in the District of Pura Pura in the city of La Paz.

Veronica works more than 10 hours a day as a secretary for a carpet company. With what little she earns, she is able to pay for the cost of food and basic services for her family. The only support she receives from her husband is in the amount of 600 BOB.

The loan she is requesting will be used to pay for English classes since this is a skill that will help her communicate with people from abroad. Her dream is to have a carpet store of her own since this is the type of business where she is currently employed.

This is the first time Veronica has worked with Kiva.
