A loan of $200 helped purchase potatoes, sausages, cooking oil and sauces for street food sales.


Teresa's story

Teresa sells salchipapas (Peruvian street food made of pan-fried sausages and French fries) and hamburgers for a living, working alongside her children, who help her sell the food.


She lives in the North Zone on Periférica Avenue in the city of La Paz. She has three children, two of whom are under her care while one is independent.


The loan will be used to purchase ingredients (potatoes, sausages, cooking oil and sauces).


This is the second time she requests a loan from Impro. Her good credit history qualifies her as a client 1, which means she adequately repays her loans.
