A loan of $800 helped to buy and be the owner of a union transport line, where he now works as a salaried employee, so that he doesn't have to pay the high monthly dues.


Rene's story

Rene has lived with his partner for 25 years. They have two school-age children. He lives in his parents' house, which has six rooms with stucco walls and floors made of wood planks and cement. The house is in the Nuevos Horizontes neighborhood in El Alto. He works six days a week as a salaried, union taxi driver. He has daily income. His wife has a local store, where she works every day. The store is in a rented space, not in their house. Both pay for the family's basic services.

Rene needs a loan to buy a transport line in the union with which he is affiliated. He will be able to earn more because he now pays monthly dues, as he is not an owner. He dreams of owning his own vehicle. This is his first loan with IMPRO and Kiva.
