A loan of $600 helped to buy replacement parts for the vehicle she uses to transport cargo.


Gisela's story

Gisela lives in her parents’ house in an apartment that was given to her in anticrético. She has a son. She works with her vehicle, and she has a high school education. She occupies a brick room, and the house is in the San Martín area of the city of La Paz. Gisela no longer lives with her husband because they are separated.

Gisela works with her micro-bus providing land cargo transportation. This generates her income to pay for food, electricity, water, and other basic services for herself and her son in the anticrético where she lives.

She needs the loan to buy replacement parts for her vehicle (to buy a pair of tires, brake and transmission fluids, and new air filter). Gisela’s dream is to improve her income to make her more comfortable and to have a house in the future.

This is the 12th time with IMPRO and the eighth time with Kiva that she has had loans. She is very happy about the loan.
