A loan of $1,000 helped to buy bricks, cement and sand to continue building an apartment in his parents' house.


Jose Luis's story

Jose Luis is single and doesn't have any children. He lives in his parents' house in Chijini, in the city of La Paz. Jose Luis currently works for a private company as a civil engineer. He works more than ten hours a day as he needs to cover the cost of his food and basic services. He needs this loan to buy building supplies (cement, bricks, iron and sand). He is currently building an apartment within his parents' home as he would like to improve his quality of life. Jose Luis' dream is to improve his income so that he can finish building his home and live more comfortably. This is the first time that he has requested a loan from Impro and Kiva.
