A loan of $750 helped to pay for the annual maintenance of his taxi.


Edgar's story

Edgar is divorced and lives with his aunt and uncle in the area of Santa Rosa in the city of El Alto. He has works as a taxi driver for more than 10 hours a day in order to support his children. His ex-wife is unemployed and she can't help with expenses.

He needs the loan to do the annual maintenance on his car, which is his working equipment. Edgar's dream is to give his children a more comfortable life so that they can grow up healthy and later go to school to have a career.

This is the first time that he has asked for a loan from IMPRO and Kiva.
