Patricia's story

Patricia’s single and has a school-age son. She lives in an apartment with a living room, bedroom, kitchen and bath. The apartment is brick with cement floors and is located in the city of La Paz’s El Rosario zone.

Currently, Patricia works as an employee in a private institution; she works in general customer relations and in the evenings works selling cosmetics of the Esika and Yanval brands. She works every day of the week in order to support and care for her family. She’s responsible for her son’s utility, food, dress and education costs. Patricia’s dream is being able to have a cosmetics shop and to help improve her son’s quality of life by means of his education. This is the first time she’s requested credit from IMPRO and KIVA.
