A loan of $750 helped to buy men's and women's clothing for her business.


Nicolasa's story

Nicolasa is married, and she lives in the Nuevo Potosí area of the city of La Paz. Her home needs a lot of repairs, which she is not able to pay for. Her living conditions are quite bad.

She works selling clothes. Her husband works in another department in Bolivia, and he sends a limited amount of money monthly for the family.

She needs the loan to buy merchandise (clothing for men and women), which will serve to expand her business.

Nicolosa’s dream is to be able to save enough and to make the repairs to her house. She wants to do this in order to improve her family’s living conditions.

This is the first time she has worked with Kiva.
