A loan of $1,000 helped to buy all kinds of clothing for men and women to sell to her customers.

Irma's story

Irma is married and has a daughter. She lives in her own home with one floor and a bedroom, kitchen and bathroom. The building is made of adobe and the floor of cement. The house is located in Tembladerani in the city of La Paz, in a street without much street lighting at night.

Irma currently works traveling and collecting all kinds of clothing which she sells in different areas. She is self employed, and works in Tembladerani in the city of La Paz at the moment. She supports her family by paying for food, bills, and her daughter's education. Her husband works in the interior of the country.

She needs this loan to buy more merchandize (all kinds of clothing), because she has very little working capital which means that she does not sell much merchandize. The loan will help her to increase her earnings.

This is the fifth time that she is requesting a loan from IMPRO and the third from KIVA.
