Orlando's story

Orlando’s married and has four children all of which are independent now. He lives in his own house occupying a single room with brick walls and dirt floor; the house is located in the city of La Paz’s San Antonio Bajo zone.

He currently earns income working as a carpenter more than ten hours daily doing all kinds of work with wood; he is the only one who covers food and basic utility costs for his family.

He needs the loan to buy materials and supplies to refurbish his room because the walls are quite deteriorated. He needs to buy bricks, cement, stucco and paint.

Orlando’s dream is to build more rooms and a bathroom at home so that his children can move in and also to improve his quality of life. This is his 11th loan request with IMPRO and second with KIVA.
