A loan of $500 helped to cover the cost of maintaining his taxi.


Juan's story

Juan is married and has a son who is in grade school, and they live in a their own two bedroom home. The house is located in the Bella Vista district of the city of La Paz. Currently Juan works more than 10 hours a day as a driver, as he must cover the costs of food, school, and basic services for his family. His wife earns very little as a maid in private residences.

The loan is needed to cover the costs of maintenance for Juan's vehicle, as it is the primary source of income for his family. Juan's dream is to build additional rooms for his house in order to provide for the comfort and security of his family. This is Juan's first loan working with IMPRO, as well as his first time with Kiva.
