A loan of $800 helped to service his taxi cab.


Eduardo's story

Eduardo’s married and has two children, a boy and a girl; both are school age. He lives in a house in the ‘anticrético’ modality [transaction whereby a property owner requests a "loan" from you in exchange for housing, which must be paid back to you at the end of your contract. If your loan is not repaid, the property owner could lose the property to you.]. It has a living room, bedroom, kitchen and bathroom. It’s adobe with cement floors and the house is located in the city of La Paz’s Pasankeri Norte zone.

He currently works driving his own ‘trufi’ [coop taxi with set route]. His wife helps with work and with caring for the children. They work every day of the week and both contribute towards utility, food, dress and schooling costs for their children.

He needs the loan to pay for maintenance service of his work tool which is his vehicle since it’s his only source of income. Eduardo’s dream is to have a house of his own to live in with his family and to improve his quality of life. This is the first time he’s requested credit from IMPRO and KIVA.
