Goldy's story

Goldy is divorced and has two children. She’s been living in the ‘anticrético’ modality (a legal agreement between a homeowner and a tenant in which an amount of money is agreed upon for a term of no more than a year at the end of which the money is returned to the tenant who must then vacate the home or apartment) for a year now. She has use of an apartment with all necessary space for a sewing workshop. The house is brick with a wood floor and it’s located in the city of La Paz’s Llojeta
Bajo neighborhood.

She currently works as a sewing artisan manufacturing weatherproof clothes. She makes sports sweatshirts and jackets and every weekend delivers her goods to a girlfriend who takes care of selling them in the markets and street markets in La Paz. Income earned is used for her transportation and food costs. She needs the loan to buy raw materials (weatherproof fabric) to make more clothes thus improving her income. Goldy’s dream is to own a house to improve her quality of life. This is her first loan request to IMPRO and to KIVA.
