A loan of $400 helped to buy replacement parts and pay for maintenance on one of his taxis.


Abel's story

Abel is married and has two children. He lives in a relative’s house, occupying one room with brick finishing and a wood floor. The house is in the Barrio Ferroviario area of the city of La Paz.

Abel went to school up to high school. He is employed, and he currently works delivering roasted chicken. He also has two taxis from which he gets income to help cover the family expenses.

He needs the loans to buy replacement parts (brake pads, air filter, and gasoline filter) for repair and maintenance on one of his vehicles.

Abel’s dream is to have good income in order to improve his quality of life.

This is the second time he has requested a loan from IMPRO and the second time with Kiva.
