A loan of $1,025 helped purchase construction materials to finish a room in her house.


Margarita's story

Margarita is married and has three children. Of those, two are already independent and only one lives with her and is school-aged. They live in their own three-bedroom house located in the Tacagua area of the city of La Paz. Currently, she earns an income by selling fruit. She works for more than eight hours per day in the street since she does not have a permanent stand. She also earns an income since her husband works as a mason. They both contribute towards food, education and the payment of basic services for their family. She's requesting a loan to purchase construction materials in order to finish a room in the house, since they would like to be more comfortable and improve their quality of life. With a previous loan, also granted through Kiva, she was able to improve her living conditions and now she can improve them even more. Margarita's dream is to increase her working capital and improve her income.
