Paula's story

Paula’s married and has three children who are all independent. Paula only attended elementary school. She lives as a caretaker in a relative’s house occupying a single room with adobe walls and a dirt floor located in the city of El Alto’s Villa Ingenio zone. Paula sells gloves she knits herself in various street markets in different parts of the city of El Alto and with the little she earns is able to cover her food and basic utility costs. She needs the loan to buy more yarn and increase her capital to have a wider variety of gloves to offer her buyers. Paula’s dream is to improve her income and above all to improve her family’s quality of life. This is 7th IMPRO loan request and 4th with KIVA.
