A loan of $1,500 helped to buy cement, sand, and bricks so that he can build a security wall around his home.

Faustino's story

Faustino is married and has six children. Two of them are already independent and four of them are of school age. Faustino and his family live in their own home, which consists of two rooms that have brick walls and dirt floors. The house is located in the District of Alto Llojeta in the city of La Paz.

Faustino only has an elementary school education. He currently works more than eight hours a day selling bricks with his wife. This enables them to cover the cost of education, food, and basic services for their family.

The loan he is requesting will be used to buy sand, cement, and bricks so that he can build a wall around his house. He wants to provide more security and comfort for his family.

Faustino’s dream is to build more rooms so that he can improve his family’s quality of life. This is the first time he has received a loan from IMPRO and Kiva.
