A loan of $500 helped to buy a cloth-cutting machine to speed up his work assembling gym shorts.

Javier's story

Javier is married and has two children. One of them is school-aged. They live in the house of Javier’s in-laws. The house is located in the Rio Seco zone of the city of El Alto.

Javier studied until secondary school, and he and his wife put together gym shorts. Each week they receive a certain quantity of cloth for their respective assembly projects.

He needs the loan to acquire a cutting machine to speed up his work.

Javier’s dream is to equip his sewing workshop with more machines and convert himself into a microentrepreneur.

This is the second time that he has applied for a loan through IMPRO and the first time with Kiva.
