A loan of $1,200 helped to buy raw materials at wholesale.


Mario's story

Mario isn’t married but lives with his spouse; they have four children who are all independent now. Mario lives with his spouse in their own house occupying two small rooms with brick walls and dirt floors. The house is located in the city of La Paz’s San Juan zone.

Mario completed secondary school and knows that he must cover food and basic utility costs with money earned working as a tailor.

He needs the loan to buy materials and supplies for work; he wants to buy fabric, lining and thread at wholesale to make suits for subsequent sale. He works more than ten hours per day.

Mario’s dream is to add on more rooms to his house so that he can house his children and improve their quality of life. This is his tenth loan request to IMPRO and first to KIVA.
