A loan of $500 helped to buy tires and a battery for his vehicle.

Leonardo's story

Leonardo is married and has two children who are school-aged. They live in two rooms in his in-law's house. The home is located in the northern part of the city of La Paz.

Leonardo currently works as a driver for more than 8 hours a day, up until the late hours of the night. This occupation carries a lot of risks, but he needs the earnings to cover the expenses for his family's food, education and basic services.

Leonardo needs a loan to do maintenance work on his vehicle. He wants to buy a battery and tires, because this is the only source of income he has to support his family.

Leonardo's dream is to increase his income so that he could acquire a house through an anticrético (lease arrangement). This would enable him to provide more security for his family, and improve their quality of life.

This is the first time that Leonardo has worked with IMPRO together with Kiva.
