A loan of $500 helped to purchase an encyclopedia for his children who are in school.


Jose Luis's story

Jose Luis is married and has two children who are in school. They live in a home under an "anticrético" (anticresis) arrangement. The house is located in the Llojeta zone of the city of La Paz. He currently works independently doing electrical and telephone installations. He does this work for over 8 to 10 hours a day. He does not have any medical insurance, which he should, since the work he does is very dangerous and with the little that he earns he needs to cover the food, education, and basic services expenses for his family. He needs this loan to purchase an encyclopedia for his children who need it for their studies. He does not have the money to buy it. Jose Luis dreams of improving his income and being able to acquire a larger home in anticresis in order to be able to provide greater security and comfort to his family. This is the fifth time he has requested a loan with IMPRO, and the second with KIVA.
