A loan of $1,000 helped to buy some land.

Maria's story

Maria is the single mother of a 2 year-old child. They live with the child's grandmother in a cousin's house (the rent is paid by the grandmother). This house is located in the Villa Cooperativa neighborhood of the city of El Alto.

Maria only completed high school; she could not continue with her studies because she lacked sufficient resources. She has a business selling drinks made from quinoa and oats on the street in the La Ceja neighborhood of El Alto.

She needs a loan to buy a plot of land located a few blocks from her current dwelling.

Maria's dream is to have a 2-story house. This way, she could provide her family with greater comfort.

This is the first time that Maria has requested a loan from IMPRO and KIVA.
