A loan of $1,000 helped to buy tires, a battery and to repair his taxi's gear box.


Daniel's story

Daniel is married and has a son. They live in his parents’ house occupying two bedrooms with quality finishing and hardwood floors; the house is located in the city of La Paz’s San Pedro zone. Daniel works as a driver for more than 8 hours daily. His wife sells food at home and with the little they earn are able to cover food and basic utility costs for their family. He needs the loan to buy tires and a battery and to repair his car’s gear box since it’s his only source of employment to support his family. Daniel’s dream is to improve his income to buy a house under the ‘anticrético’ [transaction not 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] modality to provide more comfort for his family. This is the second loan request to IMPRO and first to KIVA.
