A loan of $1,000 helped to buy the taxi that he drives, which he is currently renting.

Hugo's story

Hugo is a taxi driver. He completed high school and lives at his parents house, using three of their rooms that are made of bricks and wooden floors. The house is in the Bajo Llojeta area of the city of La Paz.

Hugo works eight hours a day to cover costs such as food, water and electricity.

Hugo needs this loan to increase his capital as he will buy the taxi that he drives as he currently only rents it. Buying it will improve his income.

This is the first time he has borrowed from IMPRO and Kiva.
