A loan of $300 helped to buy hats in assorted colors and textures.

Ines's story

Inés is separated and has two school-age children. They live in her ex-husband’s house located in the city of El Alto’s Bautista Saavedra zone. Inés only attended elementary school and currently is a hat seller at the Río Seco street market Tuesdays and Fridays. She also sells on Thursdays and Sundays in the city of El Alto’s 16 de Julio zone.

She needs the loan to buy hats in assorted colors and textures because this is what her customers are requesting and she must not lose these sales since they are her only source of income.

Inés’ dream is to become a micro businesswoman and to have a hat shop where she can sell at wholesale. This is her third Impro loan request and first with Kiva.
