A loan of $800 helped to buy a glass cutting machine to cut glass for windows and doors and to tend to his customers' orders.

Willy's story

Willy lives with his wife; he does not have children. He rents the house where they live, and they occupy two rooms with brick walls and dirt floors. He is employed at a glass business in the Villa Dolores area of the city of El Alto.

Willy works over eight hours a day at a glass business because he covers expenses for basic services, food, and rent.

He needs the loan to buy a glass cutting machine with which he will be able to cut and deliver windows sized to order and become a small businessman.

Willy’s dream is to become a small businessman and to open his own glass shop. That is why he needs the loan to buy the machine. This way he will increase his income in order to improve the quality of life for his household.

He is very satisfied with the previous loans he received. This is his sixth loan with IMPRO and his third with Kiva.
