A loan of $550 helped to buy merchandise for his busienss.


Oswaldo's story

Oswaldo is divorced. He lives in his mother's house, where he only takes up a room made of adobe and cement. The house is located in the Bajo Tacagua area of the town of La Paz.
He currently works over eight hours a day as a salesperson for a private company. With the little he earns he must pay for the expenses he has with food and basic services.
He requests the loan in order to stock up on merchandise, since aside from working as a salesperson he also sells biscuits independently. That's why he requests the loan so he can improve his profits.
Oswaldo's dream is to be a self-employed vendor so that later on he can become independent and have more comfort. He also wishes to provide security for his son and therefore improve his living conditions.
This is the second time he requests a loan with IMPRO and Kiva.
