A loan of $500 helped to do general maintenance work on his taxi (buy tires and a battery).


Rene's story

René is single and has a school-aged child. He lives in a rented home, located in the Villa Copacabana neighborhood of the city of La Paz.

René studied electronics, and now earns an income working as a driver (he owns a taxi) for more than 8 hours a day. He even works up to the late hours of the night, because he has to cover the expenses for rent, food and education for his daughter.

He needs a loan to do general maintenance work on his vehicle; he wants to buy tires and a battery to maintain the vehicle and increase his income.

René's dream is to increase his income and acquire a house through an "anticretico" (lease arrangement) to improve his quality of life.

This is the first time that he has requested a loan from IMPRO, and also the first time with Kiva.
