A loan of $500 helped to pay for vehicle maintenance.


Mario's story

Mario is married and has four children. They live in a rented house in the Plan Autopista District of the city of La Paz.


Mario works more than 10 hours as a driver for a public transportation union. The loan he is requesting will be used to maintain his vehicle since it is the only source of income by which he can support his family. With what little he earns, he can only pay for the rent and food for his children. His wife does not contribute financially.


Mario dreams of having a home of his own so that he can provide greater comfort for his children since they are at the stage of preparing for university. This is the first time he has worked with IMPRO and Kiva.
