A loan of $1,500 helped to pay for the production of his postgraduate thesis.


Reynaldo's story

Reynaldo is single and does not have children. He lives in a just a small room in his grandparents’ house. The house is in the San Pedro area of the city of La Paz.

He currently gets income because he works as an assistant for two lawyers. He needs the loan for the production of his postgraduate thesis.

At the present time he is studying law at the university. However, what he earns for working over ten hours is not enough to pay for his studies and also cover the expenses of food, basic services, and doctors for his grandparents.

Reynaldo’s dream is to become independent and to have an office in order to have his own clients. This way he will improve his income and his quality of life.

This is the first time that he has requested a loan from IMPRO and Kiva.
