A loan of $1,000 helped to buy wooden doors and windows in order to live more comfortably.

David's story

David is married and has two school age children, a boy and a girl. He lives in his own house. His environment includes a bedroom and a kitchen. It is a brick house with a dirt floor. The house is located in the Cotahuma area of the city of El Alto. It does not have windows or doors; they are covered with blankets.

He currently works as a unionized taxi driver. The paths and routes in this place are full of dirt and dust. The route is in surrounding, periurban areas, and he works every day of the week.

The loan that he needs is to buy doors and windows. This is because the temperatures in La Paz have gone down, and this way he will help improve his quality of life. This is the first time he has requested a loan from IMPRO and Kiva.
