A loan of $1,200 helped to buy bricks, cement, sand, stucco and other supplies for constructing an additional room.

Alvaro's story

Alvaro is single and has one school-aged son. He lives in his parents' home, occupying just one room. The house is located in the San Antonio area of the city of La Paz.

Currently he works as an employee at a private company, doing architectural work for more than 10 hours a day, as he must cover expenses for food, education and payment of basic services.

He needs the loan in order to purchase construction materials such as brick, cement, sand, stucco, wooden beams and other supplies for the construction of another room, as he wishes to provide his son with more comfort.

Alvaro's dream is to improve his income and his quality of life.

This is the first time he has worked with IMPRO and Kiva.
