A loan of $500 helped buy a prefabricated garage to keep the taxi he drives.

Tomas's story

Tomas works as a wage-earning taxi driver in the city of La Paz; he is a widower and lives alone in his old age though he is supported by his children who are independent. His home is located in the Lagunas zone in the city of El Alto.

Currently, Tomas rents his home and this loan will be used to buy a prefabricated garage which he can place on his land where he already has a small edifice built. Tomas will use this as his bedroom and therefore be able to live more calmly since he will be able to keep his taxi in a secure place at night and not have to walk to his home; he will also be able to save on rent.

This is his second loan from Impro; his punctual payments on his previous loan make it easy to approve him for this one.
