A loan helped to repair his rooms.


Luis's story

Luis is single, and he does not have children. He lives in only two rooms of his parents’ house. He lives in the Miraflores area of the city of La Paz.

He has an advanced vocational education in electronics. He currently gets income from working as a locksmith. He does all kinds of metal work for over 12 hours a day. He does this to cover his food and medical expenses.

He needs the loan to repair the rooms because they are in very bad shape, and there are cracks. That is why he wants to fix them and improve his quality of life.

Luís’s dream is to improve his income in order to be able to become independent. He also dreams of having his own shop, which he currently shares with another person.

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