A loan of $800 helped to buy sugar, rice, sodas, stuffed animals, and toys.


Vanessa's story

Vanessa lives at her mother’s house. At the moment, she is not able to find work as an accountant so she is operating a neighborhood store from her mother’s house. The house has one room, is made of brick, and has wooden floors. Her home is located in the District of Alto San Pedro in the city of La Paz.


Vanessa’s grocery store is her only source of income. The loan she is requesting will increase her capital so that she can restock her store. In other words, she will buy more sugar, rice, and sodas, as well as other items, such as stuffed animals and toys for the Christmas season.


Vanessa’s dream is to have a larger store so that she can grow her business and improve her earnings. This will enable her to support herself until she can find a job as an accountant.


This is the first time she has worked with IMPRO and Kiva.
