Sara's story

Sara is married and has a small child. They live in a house they own, occupying two small rooms. The house is located in the Ernesto Torrez area of the city of La Paz. Currently she works more than ten hours a day as a street vendor selling clothing and accessories because she does not have a fixed stall.

She needs a loan to increase her working capital because she wants to increase earnings since she helps to pay for her family’s food and basic services.

Sara’s dream is to have her own stall so that she will not have to endure walking, which is very demanding, and so that she can improve her earnings.

This is the first time she has applied for a loan from Impro and from Kiva.
