Ruben's story

Señor Ruben lives in rented housing in the Tembladerani zone of the city of La Paz. He is married and has two children, ages 4 and 2. The business which he carries out is the manufacture of “neceseres” (small purses for keeping cosmetics), purses, satchels, cell phone carriers, etc., which he sells from a stand that he has in his home.

The loan he is applying for is for the purchase of better quality fabric which will allow him to maintain a stable business, since he has a number of orders. This is the first time he has applied for a loan from Impro through Kiva. Because the business is expanding Ruben can meet the terms of a loan.
