La Paz, Bolivia / Personal Medical Expenses

A loan of $1,000 helped to pay for continued post-operative treatment.


Blanca's story

Blanca is single and has two children who are in school. She lives in a rented home that includes two rooms with finished walls and cement floors. The house is located in the District of Miraflores in the city of La Paz.

Blanca is employed by a company that sells household appliances. She works 10 hours a day and uses what little she earns to cover expenses, such as food and basic services for her family. The father of her children has never been present for them.

The loan she is requesting will be used to pay for continued post-operative medical treatment. She needs to stay in good health so that she can care for her children. Blanca’s dream is to save money and buy a house of her own.

This is the third time she has requested a Kiva loan.
