A loan of $400 helped to buy wood and glue.


Emilio's story

Emilio is a widower. He has two school age children. They live in their own house occupying two small rooms with adobe walls. The house is located in the city of La Paz’s San Antonio zone.

He currently works manufacturing all types of things out of wood since he’s a carpenter. He works more than 10 hours daily since he’s the only one who covers food, education and medical expenses for his family which is why he’s asking for a loan because he wants to buy more wood and glue to make the items and then sell them since what little he earns is insufficient to buy the materials.

Emilio’s dream is to add more rooms to his house and to enlarge his workshop to improve income and quality of life. This is the second time he’s worked with IMPRO and KIVA.
