A loan of $800 helped to buy a motorcycle.

Fridolino's story

Fridolino is married and has two school-aged sons. He lives in a home of his own where he has a living room, bedroom, and kitchen. It's an adobe home with a dirt floor, located in the Coripata zone in the Trinidad Pampa de Los Yungas sector, a rural part of La Paz.

He currently raises vegetables on land that he has. His wife also works in raising vegetables and weeding and cleaning the fields (planted fields). He sells his products in the same zone where he lives in La Paz. The area where he works is filled with dirt and dust. The road is dirt. They work every day and both contribute toward their children's services, food, and clothing.

He needs this loan so that he can buy a motorcycle to be able to move around because the work area is located 10 km from his home.

Fridolino's dream is to be able to have this tool that will allow him to improve his production and make it cleaner. This will save him time and money because he has to wait for trucks and pay for their service. This will help him improve his quality of life.

This will be his first time requesting a loan through IMPRO and Kiva.
