A loan of $600 helped to buy fabric and thread.

Prudencia's story

Prudencia works washing sand and also manufacturing fabric from thread to be used by women in their ‘polleras’ [traditional skirts]. She lives in a rented adobe house with a cement floor located in the city of La Paz’s Irpavi zone. Prudencia washes sand and manufactures ‘polleras’ generating income that way to cover her food, electricity and water costs. She needs the loan to increase capital for she’ll buy thread and fabric in various colors to increase production and thus improve her income and her quality of life. Prudencia’s dream is to have a weaving workshop and to own a house. This is her fifth time with IMPRO and fifth with KIVA.
