A loan of $1,000 helped to pay for general maintenance and an engine tune-up for his taxi.

Jhonny's story

Jhonny is single and has no children. He lives at his parents’ home which consists of a single room made of brick. The house is located in the District of Pasankeri in the city of La Paz.

Jhonny currently works more than eight hours a day and into the late hours of the evening as a taxi driver. Through his work, he is able to pay for expenses such as food and basic services. The loan he is requesting will be used for general vehicle maintenance and an engine tune-up since his vehicle is his only source of income and in need of a few repairs.

Jhonny’s dream is to improve his earnings and become independent. He wants to become more comfortable and have a better quality of life. This is the second time he has requested a loan from IMPRO, but the first time through Kiva.
