A loan of $800 helped to buy building materials and supplies to repair the leaking roof.

Hernan's story

Hernán’s married and has two children who are independent now. They live in his own, three-bedroom house located in the city of La Paz’s Achumani zone.

Hernán is currently employed by a private firm and works more than 8 hours per day because he must cover food and basic utility costs for his family.

He needs the loan to repair his roof because when it rains much water comes in because there are many leaks and that’s why he wants to replace it to improve his quality of life. He needs to buy ‘calaminas’ which are sheets of special metal widely used in Bolivia to roof houses.

His dream is to add more bedrooms to house his children and provide comfort for them. This is his second Impro loan request and first with Kiva.
