A loan of $800 helped to buy tires and to repair his taxi.


José's story

José’s single and has no children. He lives in a house under the ‘anticrético’ modality [transaction whereby a property owner requests a "loan" from you in exchange for housing, which must be paid back to you at the end of your contract. If your loan is not repaid, the property owner could lose the property to you] located in the city of La Paz’s Llojeta zone. He studied up to secondary school level and currently works as a member/owner in one of La Paz’s radio dispatched taxi firms. He needs the loan to repair his taxi’s motor and to buy new tires so his work tool will be in good condition. José’s dream is to own a second vehicle so his income will increase and his quality of life will improve. This is the first time he’s requested a loan from IMPRO and from KIVA.
