Miriam's story

Miriam is a single mother who has a four-year-old child. She lives in her own home with her three older siblings. Her house is located in the District of Villa Bolívar D in the city of El Alto.

Miriam only has a high school education. She has a small kiosk where she sells chocolates and a wide variety of sweets at the international airport in El Alto. Her loan will be used to buy plush toys and handicrafts. This will increase her operating capital, which will allow her to earn more income and improve the quality of life for her little one.

Miriam’s dream is to own a boutique where she can offer clothing made of vicuña wool and a variety of Bolivian handicrafts. This is the first time she has requested a loan from IMPRO and Kiva.
