A loan of $1,000 helped purchase of shoes to sell.


Dorotea's story

Dorotea lives in her own house with her husband in the Alto Chijini neighborhood in the city of La Paz. Her business activity is selling shoes in the traditional "cholita" style on Max Paredes street in the city center. She this activity she is able to support her family; her husband has vision problems and cannot work and can only help her loading and carrying the merchandise. The requested loan will be used to increase her business capital to purchase shoes to offer a wider variety of style and thus increase her income. She has been a client of Impro since 2000 and due to her good repayment history is qualified to receive this loan.
