A loan of $1,000 helped to buy more automobile oil and domestic appliances.


Maria Luisa's story

María lives in a rented house in the San Pedro area of the city of La Paz. María has a taxi, which she uses to generate her income. She has a driver whom she rents to every day. However, in order to increase her income, she sells all types of products like automobile oil, domestic appliances, and clothes, etc.

She is requesting the loan to buy more automobile oil and domestic appliances. Her driver had an embolism, and she had to cover his medical expenses. That is why her business is undercapitalized.

María’s dream is to have her own house. That is what she is saving for day to day. This way she will improve her quality of life.

This is the fifth time with IMPRO and her fourth with Kiva.
