A loan of $100 helped to buy school supplies for her two children since classes already started.

Hismenia's story

Sra. Hismenia works as a waitress. She has a secondary education and lives in the family home, occupying 2 rooms with finished walls and a tongue and groove floor, in the Alto San Pedro area of the city of La Paz.

Hismenia works 8 hours a day to cover the food, light, water and education expenses for her two children. She needs the loan to purchase school materials for her two children, who are in school.

Hismenia’s dream is for her two children to finish their studies and become professionals.

This is her first time with IMPRO and her first time with Kiva.
