A loan of $600 helped to pay for maintenance on the vehicle he uses to provide passenger transportation services.

Pablo's story

Pablo is married and has 2 children who are school-aged. They live in two rooms in his parents' house. The house is located in the Sopocachi neighborhood of the city of La Paz.

He is currently earning income from his work providing passenger transportation in the urban area. He works 10 hours a day, because he needs to cover his family's expenses for food, education and basic services. He is requesting a loan to pay for maintenance work on his vehicle (oil change, brake check, filter changes), because he needs to maintain his vehicle as it is the only source of work that he has to support his family.

Pablo's dream is to acquire a house through an "anticretico" (a type of lease arrangement), so that he can provide more comfort to his family and improve their quality of life. This is the first time that he has taken a loan from IMPRO and Kiva.
