A loan of $400 helped to buy wicker used to make baskets for flower shops.

Maria's story

María is single and has no children. She lives in her own, two-room house with brick walls and dirt floor located in the city of La Paz’s Villa San Juan zone. She currently works more than 12 hours daily weaving baskets for flower shops because she must use what little she earns to cover basic food and utility costs. She needs the loan to increase capital to buy wicker used to make the baskets because she wants to increase her income and quality of life. María’s dream is to build her house to have more comfort and security. This is her first loan request to IMPRO and KIVA.
