A loan of $400 helped to buy hair clippers.

Santos's story

Santos is married and has three school age children; they all live in his own, two-bedroom house located in the city of La Paz’s Achachicala zone.

Santos is a barber and works more than 12 hours daily in his barber shop since what he earns is used to pay for food, schooling and basic utility costs for his family. He needs the loan to expand and increase his barber shop’s capital purchasing hair clippers for different haircuts and hair styles; with this he hopes to improve his income to improve his quality of life.

Santos' dream is to build more rooms onto his house to provide more comfort for his family. Santos has been an IMPRO client since 1999 and this is his third time with KIVA.
