Sabina's story

Sabina is separated from her spouse and has three children who are of school age. She lives at her father’s house that has three spaces set aside for the bedroom, the kitchen, and her store. The rooms are made of adobe and have cement floors. This house is located in the District of Villa Adela in the city of El Alto, which has many schools and health clinics.

Sabina currently has a store that she operates out of her home. It is located in Villa Adela next to some athletic fields where activities are held every Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. The place is full of children, teenagers, and adults playing sports. Sabina’s husband provides financial support and helps with the cost of clothing and education for their children.

The loan she is requesting will be used for renovations to her home. She will repair the roof and install storm gutters so that she can improve her quality of life. Sabina dreams of having more capital for her store so that she can generate more income and improve her standard of living.

This is the first time she has requested a loan from IMPRO and Kiva.
