A loan of $2,500 helped to buy three electronic sewing machines for her store, where she makes traditional skirts and petticoats for women.

Ana's story

Ana is an entrepreneurial woman who works to educate and support her children. She has a store where she makes and sells traditional skirts and petticoats for indigenous women. Currently she works with a domestic sewing machine, which consumes a lot of electricity and is very slow. She lives in the city of El Alto.

With the loan she is requesting, she will buy three industrial straight sewing machines with what she will save in electricity, and she will contribute to saving electricity. She will also be able to mechanize the production of her products and to generate greater financial earnings for her family.

Ana's dream is to have a bigger store and to have the machines to satisfy the amount of demand that exists in her market.

This is the seventh time she has asked for a loan from Impro and the third with Kiva.
