A loan of $1,200 helped obtain working capital for his event planning business.

Erick's story

Erick is not married and doesn’t have any children. He has a single room in his parents’ house which is located in the city of La Paz. He is currently studying publicity and marketing at university.

Erick earns money by hiring out his vehicle for public transport, and he also gets a monthly income from his administration and cleaning job at a parking lot. This income has to cover the cost of food, education, and basic services (water and electricity).

He is seeking a loan to be used as an investment for a project with other partners. He wishes to organize events such as artistic evenings, shows, receptions etc, which is why he needs this working capital.

Erick’s dream is to complete his professional training and have his own events business and in this way improve his income and his standard of living. This is the first time he has asked IMPRO and Kiva for a loan.
