A loan of $750 helped to buy fabrics, lining, zippers, and other materials for producing jackets.

Leonardo's story

Leonardo is married and has three children. He lives at his parents’ house where he and his family occupy one room that consists of brick walls and a dirt floor. The house is located in the District of Tacagua in the city of La Paz.

Leonardo currently manufactures jackets for different organizations. With the little that he earns, he is able to pay for expenses such as education, food, and basic services for his family. The loan he is requesting will be used to buy fabric, lining, and zippers so that he can continue his work of producing jackets. Leonardo wants to increase his income so that he can improve his quality of life.

His dream is to acquire a house through an “anticrético” contract so that he can provide his family with greater security and comfort. This is the second time he has requested a loan from IMPRO and Kiva.
