A loan of $700 helped to buy knitting supplies.


Sharon's story

Sharon has two children. She lives in the family home occupying one bedroom with brick walls and dirt floor; the house is located in the city of La Paz’s Valle Hermoso zone. Sharon works independently weaving traditional fabrics. This is her only source of income and she works more than 8 hours daily to cover her family’s food, utility and clothing costs. She needs the loan to buy raw materials like fabric, yarn, ribbons and other supplies she needs to do her work. Sharon’s dream is to make the business grow and to have a workshop; she also wants to improve her income and quality of life. This is her first time with IMPRO and with KIVA.
