A loan of $800 helped to buy sweaters.

Celia's story

Celia is separated and has a 22-year-old son. They live in an "anticrético" arrangement [a tenant pays a fixed sum upon renting a house instead of monthly rent]. The house is located in the Villa Ballivian area of the city of El Alto. She studied up to elementary school.

She makes a living selling women's clothing, offering her distinguished customers a wide variety of sweaters and blouses.

She needs the loan to buy sweaters in a variety of colors and sizes because Mother's Day is approaching (27 May in Bolivia) and her sales tend to go up when she offers new types of clothes.

Celia's dream is to have her own store.

This is the first time she's requesting a loan from IMPRO and the first time from Kiva.
