A loan of $600 helped to buy supplies, flour, shortening, yeast, cheese, and other things for his pastry business.


Leon's story

Leon lives in the Cota Cota area of the city of La Paz.

He is retired, and he has a store where he and his wife make pastries and cakes . He is married and has two children.

The loan will be for working capital (to buy supplies, flour, shortening, yeast, cheese, and other things).

This is the ninth time that he has requested a loan with Impro. It is the second time that he has requested Kiva’s support. He has demonstrated responsibility with his payments.

With this loan he will be able to increase his earnings and buy supplies in large quantities in order to improve the purchase price.
