A loan of $250 helped to buy women's clothing.

Lourdes's story

Lourdes is a trader. She travels to Desaguadero, on the border with Peru, to buy large quantities of women's clothing which she then sells in El Alto's markets. Her husband helps her with her work, because like many Bolivian men, he is currently unemployed. The couple have their own home, in the El Alto neighbourhood of Estrella de Belen/ Rio Seco. Lourdes will use this loan to buy merchandise (women's clothing), so that she can meet the demand that exists for her products. This is her first loan from Impro, but she has been fully evaluated as a potential client and deemed eligible to receive the loan she has requested.
