A loan of $1,500 helped to make the final payment on a minibus.

Edgar's story

Edgar’s married and has a son who is still nursing. He lives in a rented, three-room house; it has a bedroom, kitchen and bathroom. The house is brick and the floor is wood. The house is located in Villa Esperanza zone which is where the city of El Alto’s educational centers are.

He’s currently employed in petroleum extraction and works every day except Sunday. His wife’s a street vendor selling ‘batidos’ (very pleasant drinks made from egg and dark beer) in street markets in El Alto’s Villa Esperanza. They both contribute to utility, food and clothing costs.

He needs the loan to make the final payment on a passenger minibus because he wants to have an additional work tool to improve his income. Edgar’s dream is to work independently to earn higher income and improve his quality of life. This is his first loan request to Impro and to Kiva.
