A loan of $700 helped to buy cement, bricks, and iron in order to build a room at his parents' house so that he will be more comfortable.

Richard's story

Richard is single and has no children. He lives in his parents’ house in the Tahuantinsuyo area of the city of El Alto. He has a higher-level of education.

He now works as a teacher in the rural section of Chuma in the Yungas area of La Paz.

He needs the loan to buy construction materials. He will buy cement, brick, and iron. This way he will be able to build a room for himself and be more comfortable.

Richard’s dream is to have his own little house.

This is the third time he has requested a loan from IMPRO and the first time from Kiva.
