A loan of $600 helped to pay for medical expenses and to buy materials and medication she will need for her daughter, who broke her right clavicle.

Lucia's story

Lucia is married and has two school age children, a boy and a girl. She lives in her own house. Her environment includes a bedroom and a kitchen. It is an adobe house with a dirt floor. The house is located in the Las Retamas area of the city of El Alto, which is in the process of urban development.

She currently works with her husband on a minibus. The paths and routes in this place are full of dirt and dust. She works every day of the week. He husband is a syndicated driver currently working in the intercity area of the city of La Paz and El Alto. Both of them contribute to paying for services, food, and clothing.

The loan that she needs is for her daughter’s health. Her daughter had an accident, and she broke her right clavicle. She needs to pay for medical attention, the special materials they will need, and medications. This is the first time she has requested a loan from IMPRO and Kiva.
