A loan of $1,500 helped to buy bricks, cement, sand and stucco to build a wall and to make some finishing touches on his house.


Crisostomo's story

Crisostomo is married and has 4 children who are now independent. He lives in his own house, occupying two rooms with brick walls and an earthen floor. The house is located in the Bella Vista neighborhood of La Paz. Crisostomo now works more than 8 hours a day as a bricklayer, because with his modest income he must cover the expenses for food and basic utilities. Crisostomo needs a loan to buy construction materials (bricks, cement, sand, and stucco) to build a wall in his house, and to do some finishing touches on the house, because he wants to improve his quality of life. His dream is to finish the construction on his house so that he can accommodate his children and provide them with more comfort and security. This is the 5th time that he has requested financing from IMPRO, and the second time with Kiva.
