A loan of $1,200 helped to buy fabric, buttons, thread, and zippers.


Samuel's story

Samuel is separated and has one school-age child. They live in the family home located in the Ciudad Satélite area of the city of El Alto. He studied up to secondary school and currently makes a living sewing. He gets contracts to make athletic clothing and work clothing. He has sales stalls in the Ciudad Satélite area of El Alto. His son helps him cut the fabric. He needs the loan to increase his capital and buy fabric, buttons, thread, and zippers because classes have begun and there are more customers. Samuel's dream is to become a wholesale merchant of athletic wear and work clothing. This way he'll be able to improve his family's quality of life. This is the first time he's requesting a loan from IMPRO and the first time from Kiva.
