A loan of $500 helped to buy potatoes, rice, and cooking oil at wholesale.

Kattia's story

Kattia is married and has a school-aged daughter. The family lives in her mother's house, which is located in the Rio Seco neighborhood of the city of El Alto.

Kattia has only a high school education. She currently works selling fast food: sausages, fries, hamburgers, hot dogs, and chicken. Her husband works as a salaried driver in a taxi driver's union in the city of El Alto.

Kattia needs a loan to buy supplies at wholesale, such as: potatoes, rice, and cooking oil. This way she will be able to increase her earnings a bit, because by purchasing at wholesale she can get a lower price for her ingredients.

Kattia's dream is to have a catering service where she could offer her customers not only fast food, but also lunches and dinners. This way, she could improve her family's quality of life and increase her income.

This is the first time that Kattia has requested a loan from IMPRO, and also her first time with Kiva.
