A loan of $1,000 helped to buy bricks cement and sand, in order to build a retaining wall on his property as protection from the rain..


Juan's story

Juan is married and has three children. One is school-age, and two are at university. He lives in a rather modest home in the Tupac Amaru area of the city of La Paz. Currently he works as a truck driver for more than 10 hours a day, as he is the sole support of his household.

He needs a loan in order to build a retaining wall on his property as protection from the rain. For this, he needs to buy bricks, cement, and sand.

Juan's dream is to give his family a home where they can live more comfortably without weather concerns. This is the fourth time that he has applied for a loan with IMPRO, and the first time with Kiva.
