A loan of $450 helped to buy a greater quantity of traditional women's shoes to continue with her shoe sales business.


Dorotea's story

Dorotea is married and lives with her husband in a house they own in the Alto Chijini area of the city of La Paz. Currently she works for more than ten hours, as she sells traditional shoes at a market in the city of La Paz. She maintains her family with this business, as her husband doesn't work because he is older and can no longer hear.

The loan she is asking for is to increase her capital, to stock her shoes and to avoid losing customers, as this is her only source of income. This is the sixth time that she has asked for a loan at IMPRO, and the first time with KIVA.
