A loan of $700 helped to repair the front of his house.


Patricio's story

Patricio is married and has three children. They live in their own house with two small rooms that have brick walls and dirt floors. The house is located in the Villa Ingenio area of the city of El Alto. He currently works as a driver. He works over ten hours a day until the late hours of the night. He does this because it is the only source of work that he has to cover the family’s expenses for food, education, and basic services. He needs the loan to repair the front of his house. The walls are adobe, and he wishes to improve his family’s quality of life. Patricio’s dream is to build more rooms. He has three children, and he wants to make them more comfortable and safer. This is the first time he has requested a loan from IMPRO and Kiva.
