La Paz, Bolivia / Bakery

Leon's story

León is married and has three children who are all independent . He lives in his own home with his wife and his elderly father. The house is located in the Cota Cota area of the city of La Paz.

He studied up until a technical degree in graphic design and he currently works making cakes and empanadas together with his wife in a location set up for that.

He needs this loan to repair the bakery as the walls are quite deteriorated. He will buy stucco, bricks, and paint, as well as supplies such as flour, sugar, milk, yeast, etc. León's dream is to build more rooms in his house so that he can house his children and expand his bakery. This is the second time he has requested a loan from IMPRO and the first time with Kiva.
