Ana's story

Ana is single and has four children who are all school age. They all live in a small, rented, one-bedroom house located in the city of La Paz’s Mariscal Santa Cruz zone. She only completed secondary school and currently has a neighborhood store that earns daily income. She needs the loan to increase her stock of merchandise (sugar, rice, noodles, soft-drinks, etc.) in her store for the end-of-year festivities to increase her income and also to improve her quality of life since she’s the only one that covers rental, schooling and food costs for her family.


Ana’s dream is to acquire a house under the ‘Anticrético’ modality (a legal transaction that allows for an agreement between a house owner and a renter to live in a house or department for a global amount and for a period of time no greater than two years at the end of which the house owner must return the money to the renter) so she can save on rental costs and provide more comfort for her family. This is the first time she’s worked with IMPRO and KIVA.
