A loan of $1,000 helped to build partition walls on the ground floor of his house.


Jorge's story

Jorge is a mechanic and his level of education mid-technical. He has four children and lives in a four-bedroom brick and ‘machimbre’ (wood slats nailed onto wood beams) floor house located in the city of La Paz’s Bajo Sopocachi zone.

Jorge works as a mechanic for more than 12 hours daily to cover water, electricity and his children’s education costs as well as his shop’s rent.

He needs the loan to build partition walls (to separate bedrooms and they are made of bricks) on the ground floor of his house to improve quality of life.

Jorge’s dream is to finish building his house to provide better quality of life for his children. This is his first time with IMPRO and with KIVA.
