A loan of $1,200 helped to buy dinner service, pots, pans, etc. to provide a better service at the restaurant where he works serving customers..


Jaime's story

Jaime is single and does not have children. He lives at his parents' house, located in the neighborhood of Ciudadela Ferroviaria, in the city of La Paz, and uses only one bedroom. He currently works for over six hours preparing food for a private company and providing customer service.

He is requesting a loan to buy kitchen supplies (dinner service, pans, pots, etc.) so that he can provide a better service and reach a higher number of customers. This would allow him to increase his income and to cover his expenses in food, transportation and basic services. Jaime's dream is to have his own restaurant as chef and to serve at events so that he can improve his income and quality of life.

This is the first time he requests a loan with IMPRO and Kiva.
