A loan of $1,000 helped to expand his parents' house so that they can live better..


Richard's story

Richard is single and has no children. He lives in his parents' home which is just one room with a dirt floor. The house is located in the Las Lomas area in the city of La Paz.

He is currently making an income working as an employee at a wood company more than 12 hours a day. With the little money that he makes he has to cover food expenses and pay for basic services for his family.

He needs this loan to expand his parents' home because he wants to give his family more comfort and security. Richard's dream is to increase his income and have a profession in order to improve his quality of life. This is the second loan he has requested from IMPRO and Kiva.
