A loan of $1,000 helped buy sand and bricks to renovate part of his house.

Luis's story

Luis is a widower and has three grown children. He lives in one small room in his own house located in the Alto Sopocachi area of the city of La Paz. He receives a monthly pension with which he has to buy food and pay for basic services for his family. He also helps pay for his grandchildren’s education.
The loan he is seeking is to buy construction materials such as sand and bricks to renovate his house as he wishes to provide his family with more security and comfort.

Luis’s dream is to build more houses so that his children and grandchildren have somewhere to live and improve their standard of living.

This is his third loan with IMPRO and his second with Kiva.
