Abel's story

Abel is married and has four children who are now independent. Abel lives in his own house, which has only one room. The house is in the Alto Seguencoma area of the city of La Paz.

Abel currently receives a monthly pension and has a daily income from sales in his corner shop. He needs a loan to invest in his health as he is older now and has health problems. Abel needs some tests done on his heart and lungs.

Abel is able to cover the costs of food and paying for basic services with his income

Abel's dream is to expand his shop in order to increase his income as this is his only full-time work. With a larger shop he will improve his quality of life.

This is Abel's third loan with IMPRO, and his second with Kiva.
