A loan of $1,100 helped to pay for higher studies in architecture.

Raul's story

Raul is single and has a son. He lives in his parents' house, occupying three rooms. The house is situated in the Santiago II zone of the city of El Alto.

He currently works at a private company for more than eight hours a day, but with the income that he has, he must cover the costs of food, studies, and transportation, since he lives in the city of El Alto and his work is in the Southern zone. Thus he spends more on the trip in addition to covering the costs of basic services.

He needs the loan to pay for higher studies, since with this, he will improve his earnings to support his family. Raul's dream is to have his own architecture business, in order to improve his quality of life and later get a fixed-rent house to have greater comfort and security.

This is the first time he is working with IMPRO and with Kiva.
