A loan of $500 helped to buy sand and cement to fix his house before the rainy season.


Lucho's story

Lucho is married and has four children; two of them are school age. They live in their own house in the Rio Seco area of El Alto. He only went to school up to high school. He currently works as a shoemaker in a small shop where he makes women’s shoes. He needs the loan to get construction material (sand, cement). He wants to be able to repair his house because the rainy season is approaching. This is the third time he has requested a loan from IMPRO and the second time from Kiva.
