A loan of $2,000 helped to buy a lathe machine which will help him in his work and make it cleaner.


Teodocio's story

Teodocio is in a common-law relationship (he is not married but lives with his partner), and he has two children who attend a state school. His house is located in the Franz Tamayo zone in the city of El Alto.

Teodocio studied up to secondary school, and he currently works making metal molds (he creates molds in metal to produce various items), and repairing heavy machinery. He also creates metal doors for garages.

He needs the loan to buy a lathe machine, which will facilitate his work, optimizing his production and making it cleaner.

Teodocio's dream is to have a larger workshop.

This is the third time he is requesting a loan with IMPRO, and the first time with Kiva.
