A loan of $1,000 helped to convert his vehicle to gas.


Juan's story

Juan is married and has three children. They live in their own house, which only has four rooms. The house is located in the Ciudadela Ferroviaria area of the city of La Paz.

He currently gets income by working in urban transportation for over 12 hours a day. He does this to cover his family’s expenses for food, education, and basic services.

He needs the loan to convert his vehicle to gas, which is more economical. It is the only source of income that he has to support his family.

Juan’s dream is to build more rooms to make his family more comfortable. This way he will improve their quality of life.

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