A loan of $600 helped to buy stock merchandise for her neighborhood store.


Rina's story

Rina has a home-based, neighborhood store. She lives in her own, brick house that has a cement floor. It’s located in the city of La Paz’s Sopocachi zone. She’s open for business from Monday to Sunday for more than ten hours daily and generates income to cover her food, electricity and water costs. She needs the loan to stock her store; she will buy sugar, rice, noodles and soft-drinks, among others. Rina’s dream is to expand the business to generate more income in order to save for her old-age. This is her first time with IMPRO and KIVA.
