A loan of $700 helped to pay for the installation of telephone booths in her general store and to buy rice, sugar, and soft drinks.

Norah's story

Norah is single and has two children. She has a degree, but she does not now work in her profession. She lives in her own house, which has fine finishing touches and a wood floor. It is in the Achachicala zone of the city of La Paz.

Norah has a general store in her house. The store covers the expenses for basic services, food, and clothing.

The loan she is requesting is to install telephone booths that will allow her to expand her business. Also, with the little bit of money left over, she will also buy rice, sugar, and soft drinks to increase her capital in the store.

Norah’s dream is to add to and increase her store in order to also increase her income.

The is the first time she has requested a loan from IMPRO and Kiva.
