A loan of $1,200 helped to pay for university studies.


Maria's story

María is single and doesn’t have children. She lives in her mother’s one-room house with brick walls and a dirt floor. The house is in the Tembladerani zone of the city of La Paz. Currently she works as a secretary in a private company for more than eight hours a day because she has to use what she earns to cover the cost of food and basic utilities for her family. She needs the loan to pay for her studies, since she cannot afford to pay for them with the little she earns. María’s dream is to finish her studies and improve her income so that she can become independent, because she wants to improve her quality of life. This is the first time that she has requested a loan from IMPRO, and the first time with Kiva.
