A loan of $1,500 helped to buy ice-cream and frozen hamburgers for his grocery store.


Jose Luis's story

José Luis is single and has no children. He lives in a house under the ‘anticrético’ modality [transaction whereby a property owner requests a "loan" from you in exchange for housing, which must be paid back to you at the end of your contract. If your loan is not repaid, the property owner could lose the property to you] located in the city of El Alto’s Ciudad Satélite zone. He completed secondary school and currently has a neighborhood store where he sells a wide variety of goods like milk, cookies, various brands of soft-drinks, and others. In addition, José Luis is also a taxi driver and works two nights per week using his brother-in-law’s vehicle. He needs the loan to buy ice-cream and frozen hamburgers which is what his customers request most often. Acquiring these items will increase his working capital and his income will increase likewise. José Luis’ dream is to own a store (that is, a larger store with a wider variety of products). This is his second loan request to IMPRO and first to KIVA.
