A loan of $300 helped to buy agendas and magazines to sell in the southern area of La Paz.

Oswaldo's story

Oswaldo is divorced and has one daughter, who is breastfeeding. He lives in his parents' house, where he has a good environment with a room, a kitchen, and a bathroom. The home is made of adobe with cement floors and is located in the area of Bajo Tacagua in the city of La Paz. Since the house is in a passageway, there is little lighting at night.

He currently spends his mornings working for a company, and in the afternoons he markets and sells agendas and magazines in company offices in the southern part of La Paz. He works every day of the week, and his work in the south of the city is independent. He sustains his family by paying for services and food for his daughter.

He needs this loan in order to buy merchandise (more agendas and magazines), because he has very little working capital and thus little sales activity. This loan will help him to improve his income and his quality of life. This is his first loan with IMPRO and Kiva.
