A loan of $800 helped to pay tuition fees.

Ivan's story

Iván’s single and has no children. He lives in a rented room in the city of La Paz’s San Antonio zone. He’s currently an employee in a private firm and has to pay rental, food, education and basic utility expenses with what he earns. Iván is majoring in communication. He needs the loan to pay for his final course in communication because he can’t afford to otherwise. Iván’s dream is to improve his income and to get a house in 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] in order to save rental costs. This is the second loan request to Impro and first to Kiva.
