A loan of $1,000 helped to buy clothing and women's accessories.

Elizabeth's story

Elizabeth is married and has two school-age children. They live in their own house in three rooms. The house is located in the Sopocachi area of the city of La Paz.

Currently she works more than eight hours a day as a street vendor selling clothing and women's accessories because her husband went abroad to work and doesn't send her money. This is why she's the only one who covers her family's expenses for education, food, and basic services.

She needs the loan to increase her merchandise (to buy more clothing and women's accessories) because she wants to improve her income and her family's quality of life.

This is the third time she has requested a loan from IMPRO and the second time from Kiva.
