A loan of $1,200 helped to pay for her children's for summer classes.


Sandra's story

Sandra is married and has two school age children. She lives in a house under the “anticrético” mode [transaction whereby a property owner requests a "loan" from you in exchange for housing, which must be paid back to you at the end of your contract. If your loan is not repaid, the property owner loses the property to you]. The house is a duplex, and they occupy a small studio apartment. It is located in the Sopacachi area of the city of La Paz.

She currently works as a secretary, and her husband does not now have a job. She works eight hours a day. She does this because it is the only way to cover the family’s expenses for food, education, and basic services.

She needs the loan to pay for her children's for summer classes. Sandra’s dream is to see her children well trained and prepared for the future.

This is her third request for a loan from IMPRO and the third from Kiva.
