A loan of $600 helped to buy shoe-making supplies.


Gonzalo's story

Gonzalo’s married and has two children attending secondary school. He lives in his two-bedroom house located in the city of La Paz’s Las Lomas zone.

Gonzalo completed secondary school and currently works more than ten hours daily manufacturing women’s shoes to then sell from place to place since he does not have a permanent stand.

He needs the loan to buy materials like leather, glue, zippers, insoles, etc. needed to make his items; he will improve his income this way.

Gonzalo’s dream is to add more rooms to his house to provide more comfort for his family. This is his fifth loan request to IMPRO and first to KIVA.
