A loan of $1,100 helped to buy more clothes to sell.

Yakelin's story

Yakelin’s married and has a school age daughter. She lives in a rented, three-bedroom house located in the central part of La Paz. Yakelin works more than ten hours daily selling clothes and clothing accessories from place to place since she does not have a permanent stand and with the little she earns is able to cover rent, food and basic utility costs for her family. She needs the loan to increase her stock merchandise and to buy more clothes because she wants to improve her income and her quality of life.

Yakelin’s dream is to own a house to provide more comfort and security for her family and she also wants to have a store so she doesn’t have to sell from place to place any longer. This is her second loan request to IMPRO and first with KIVA.
