A loan of $1,000 helped to buy a computer for his children's studies.

Hernan's story

Hernán is married and has two children who are of school age. They live at the house of his in-laws where they occupy two rooms that consist of brick walls and dirt floors. The house is located in the District of Villa Fátima in the city of La Paz.

Hernán currently generates income by making and repairing shoes for men, women, and children. He works more than 10 hours a day in order to cover expenses such as food, education, and basic services for his family. The loan he is requesting will be used to buy a computer to help facilitate his children’s studies.

Hernán’s dream is to have a house of his own so that he can provide more comfort and security for his family. This is the third time he has requested a loan from IMPRO and the first time with Kiva.
