A loan of $400 helped to service his taxi.

Nestor's story

Néstor’s married and has three children who are already independent. Néstor lives in his in-laws’ house occupying a single room with brick walls and dirt floor. The house is located in the city of La Paz’s Achachicala zone.

Néstor finished secondary school and currently earns income as a taxi driver working more than ten hours daily because he must cover his family’s food and basic utility costs.

He needs the loan to service his vehicle (oil change and brake check) because it’s his only source of income. His dream is to improve his income and get a house 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] because he wants to have more comfort and improve his quality of life. This is his fourth loan request to Impro and first to Kiva.
