A loan of $1,500 helped to buy fabric.

Elias's story

Elías is single and has no children. He lives in his parents’ house occupying one small room; the house is located in the city of El Alto’s Villa Cooperativa zone.

He studied until he finished secondary school and now earns income working more than 12 hours manufacturing clothes for women and men (pants, jackets). He also earns rental fees for his car that works weekends and all night since he has to earn income to cover food, utilities and family medical costs since they don’t have medical insurance.

He requests this loan to buy fabric in various colors to make his articles of clothing and thus increase operational capital. His dream is to improve his income so that he can become independent and expand his workshop and thus improve his quality of life.

This is the third time he’s worked with Impro and first time with Kiva.
