A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a new drill, dental forceps, and filters for her office.


Patricia's story

Patricia lives in one room of her parents’ house. She works as a dentist in an office at her house. The house is in the Pasankeri area of the city of La Paz.

Patricia works in her dental office for over eight hours a day because this is her only source of income. She also helps pay her parents’ expenses for basic services.

She needs the loan to buy work tools (new drill, dental forceps, and filters) for her office. The ones she has are a little damaged. Patricia’s dream is to make her office grow, to improve her income, and to improve her quality of life.

This is her second time with IMPRO and the second time she has requested a loan to be channeled through Kiva. She is very happy with the loan that we are giving her because it will help a lot.
