A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a motorcycle to deliver food orders he makes at home.

Edwin's story

Edwin is single, and he does not have children. He lives in a rented house, occupying three rooms with brick walls and dirt floors. The house is located in the San Isidro area of the city of La Paz.

Edwin only attended school up until high school. He currently earns income making and selling food by contracts with different businesses. He works over ten hours a day. With this income he needs to cover his expenses for rent, food, and basic services.

He is requesting the loan to buy a motorcycle. This will be a big help to him delivering the food orders, and he will do it rapidly.

Edwin’s dream is to finish his studies and to take a specialized course in international food. He also dreams of having his own location for food in order to improve his income and his quality of life.

This is the first time he has worked with IMPRO and Kiva.
