Franz's story

Franz is divorced with two school age children. They live in a two-bedroom house he have under the ‘anticrético’ modality [transaction whereby a property owner requests a "loan" from you in exchange for housing, which must be paid back to you at the end of your contract. If your loan is not repaid, the property owner could lose the property to you]. The house is located in the city of La Paz’s Alto Obrajes zone.

At present he works more than ten hours daily selling wine; he’s is the only one who covers food, education and basic utility costs for his family. He needs the loan to better display the wines so that he can sell them thus improving his income.

Franz’s dream is to expand market sales in order to earn higher income and thus improve his family’s quality of life too. This is the first time he’s requested a loan from IMPRO and KIVA.
