A loan of $600 helped to buy supplies for his daughter's gastronomy courses..


Abel's story

Abel is married and has two children who are in school. They live in their own home which consists of three rooms. The house is located in the District of Alto San Pedro in the city of La Paz.

Abel currently works as an interior decorator for more than eight hours a day. This is the only job he has in order to cover the cost of food, education, and basic services for his family. The loan he is requesting will be used to buy supplies (vegetables, potatoes, meat, onions, and other items) for the gastronomy courses that his daughter is taking at a culinary institute. She has to present a few dishes for her exam, but Abel is not able to cover this expense with what little he earns.

Abel’s dream is to improve his earnings so that he can pay for his children’s educational expenses. He does not have access to additional income because his wife moved abroad. This is the second time he has requested a loan from IMPRO, but the first time with Kiva.
