A loan of $800 helped to buy fabric and party supplies.

Sandra's story

Sandra’s separated and has a school age son; they live in her parents’ house located in the city of El Alto’s Illimani Municipal zone. Sandra attended secondary school and currently works making keepsakes for social events. A few months ago she also started to lease table linen (that is, she rents it from places that have it and then she re-rents it to people hosting parties or social events).

She needs the loan to buy fabric and silk to make her own sets of table linen and she will also buy raw materials to make the keepsakes. Sandra’s dream is to have a social event mini firm. This is the first time she’s asked for credit from IMPRO and from KIVA.
