A loan of $1,400 helped to buy bricks, cement and sand to reinforce his mother's house's main entrance.


Samuel's story

Samuel is single and has no children. He lives in his mother’s house occupying a single bedroom. The house is located in the city of La Paz’s La Merced zone. He currently works more than 10 hours daily and sometimes all night for a private firm and uses what he earns to cover food and basic utility costs for his family since he lives with his mother and she’s in poor health and of advanced age.

He needs the loan to buy sand, cement and bricks because he wants to reinforce the house’s main entrance in order to have better security. Samuel’s dream is to improve his income in order to be more independent and have more comfort and improve his quality of life. This is the second time he’s worked with Impro and first with Kiva.
