A loan of $1,000 helped to pay tuition at the university where he is studying Public Accounting.

Raul's story

Raúl is married, and he does not have children. He lives in his parents’ house, and he occupies only one room, which has brick walls and a dirt floor. The house is in the Ciudadela zone in the city of La Paz.

He currently receives income because he works as a bookkeeper for over ten hours a day at a private company. He works because he needs to cover the food expenses and pay for his family’s basic services. He is unable to pay for his education with the little income he earns.

He needs the loan to pay for the tuition at the university. He is studying Public Accounting. Raúl’s dream is to complete his career studies and to improve his income. He will do this to be able to become independent and improve his family’s quality of life.

This is the second time that he has requested a loan from IMPRO and Kiva.
