A loan of $150 helped purchase construction materials for home improvements.


Tomasa's story

Tomasa lives on Manuela Gutierrez Street in the Tahunatinsuyo area of the city of El Alto. She lives with her husband who works as a miner in a mine near the city. She has a three-year-old son. She works selling potatoes and tunta (tunta is a derivative of potato, which has a different flavor and color) in different markets around the city. This loan will be used to purchase construction materials, such as calamine for the roof, stucco, etc., with which she can improve her home. This is her first loan with Impro; an evaluation determined her eligible for credit.
