A loan of $1,100 helped to buy clothing for both sexes that she can sell.

Maria's story

Maria is divorced and has three children, all of whom are independent. She lives in a rented house that consists of only one room. The house is located in the District of Cota Cota in the city of La Paz.

Maria currently receives a retirement pension, but she also works by selling houses. She is paid a percentage commission and this enables her to cover expenses, such as food and basic services.

The loan she is requesting will be used to buy merchandise. She wants to sell clothing for both sexes so that she can improve her income and her quality of life. Maria’s dream is to improve her income so that she can expand her inventory and acquire a store. She wants to avoid the amount of walking that is required of a street vendor.

This is the second time she has requested a loan from IMPRO, but the first time through Kiva.
