A loan of $750 helped to increase her capital.


Lucia's story

Lucia is separated, has two children and lives with her in-laws in the city of El Alto. She only studied up to primary school level. She survives by cooking Bolivian food (Sajta chicken, chili noodles, revuelto) from her kiosk from Monday to Saturday. She needs a loan to increase her available capital, enabling her to buy rice, noodles, oil etc. Her dream is to have a fully equipped restaurant and so have a better income and quality of life. This is the first time that she has requested a loan through Kiva.
