A loan of $1,500 helped to buy gold to put in some customers' teeth according to their orders.

Tomás's story

Tomas is separated from his wife. He lives with his minor daughter in the Munaypata area of the city of La Paz. He makes dental prosthesis.

He currently works for over ten hours in his own home. He works in a shop that he installed on the ground floor of his house. Tomas had dental problems at a very early age. Therefore, his main objective was to study to make prosthesis. What he does now is to improve peoples’ health so that they have better nutrition. According to the studies that he did, all of the people who have bad teeth have bad breath and bad chewing. This impairs their health.

The loan that he needs is to buy gold for the dental prosthesis. He has several orders from customers who wish that their dental prosthesis have a bit of gold.

This is the sixth time that he has requested a loan with IMPRO and the second time with Kiva.
