A loan of $700 helped to buy aluminum to make gutters.


Carlos's story

Carlos is married and has four children. He lives in his own house finished in adobe and a dirt floor with one bedroom, a kitchen, and a bathroom. The house is located in the Las Lomas area of the city of La Paz. He studied through the primary level and currently makes a living making gutters with his wife, because they have to cover their expenses for food, clothing, water, and electricity. He needs the loan for working capital to buy material--aluminum--for gutters. Carlos's dream is to have a more prosperous business. It's the fourth time he has requested a loan from IMPRO and the third time from Kiva.
