A loan of $1,000 helped to buy tools (screwdrivers, an electric drill and an electric screwdriver) for his work installing Panaflex advertisements.

Ernesto's story

Ernesto is single an does not have any children. He lives in his parents' house, in a single room. The house is well-situated in the suburb of Villa Armonia in the city of La Paz.

He is currently working for a company installing large Panaflex advertising boards the streets, for over 6 hours every day, since with his income he needs to pay for food, transport and basic services. 

He is asking for a loan to buy tools for his work (screwdrivers, an electric drill and an electric screwdriver), which will be very helpful to carry out his installations.

Ernesto's dream is to improve his income so that he can become independent and improve his quality of life. This is the first time he is asking for a loan with IMPRO and Kiva.
