A loan of $1,000 helped to buy adobe and plywood.

Felix's story

Félix is divorced and has five children but only two of them who are still school age depend on him. He lives in his own, four-room house sharing all the space with his children. The house is located near a hill almost at the edge of a cliff. It’s made of mud adobe and straw and the walls are stuccoed and the floor is dirt. The house is located in the city of La Paz’s Pasankeri Central zone.

He currently works as a salaried worker for a construction company working in the same zone building a sports field; he earns a monthly salary. Félix pays his family’s basic utility expenses.

He needs the loan to do some home improvements. The adobe in his house is worn down by the rain and the plywood is very used and needs to be replaced in its entirety to improve his quality of life.

Félix’s dream is that his younger children become professionals and can fend for themselves thus improving their quality of life. This is his first loan request to IMPRO and KIVA.
