Carmela

Bolivia
El Alto, Bolivia / Sewing

A loan of $500 helped buy bricks and cement to rebuild the wall in front of her home.


Carmela's story

Carmela is a landlord and makes shawls for women who wear polleras, traditional multi-layered Bolivian skirts. She has her own home and three children, one of whom is a dependant and is in nursing school. She lives in the Villa Huayna Potosí neighborhood of El Alto.

This loan will be used to buy construction material to repair the wall in front of her house, which is in a very poor state. As the rains will be coming soon, she urgently needs to replace the adobe wall with a brick one.

This is her third loan from Impro, and her good payment history allows her to be approved for this loan that she has requested.
