Prudencio's story

Prudencio is a widower and has four children at school. They live in their own house, which has three rooms with brick walls and an earth floor. The house is located in the Tacagua area of the city of La Paz.

Prudencio currently receives income from the more than 12-hour days he works as a carpenter. He is contracted to do this work, and has requested this loan to buy raw materials such as wood, adhesive, nails, etc. With the little he earns he meets his family’s food, education and medical costs, as he does not have medical insurance.

Prudencio’s dream is to build more rooms and provide his family with greater comfort to improve their quality of life. He also wants to expand his workshop to improve his income. This is the second time that he has worked with IMPRO and Kiva.
