View original language description ↓
Mario is a rural teacher. His wife and 2 children are dairy farmers, and they sell their dairy products to Pil Andina (which is an industrialization milk plant). They live in the Achacachi-Tipampa Community (which is about 2 hours from the city of El Alto).

The loan will be used towards the purchase of a medium-grade dairy cow which will help increase milk production.

This is their first loan with IMPRO. Their background check shows that they are prime candidates for a loan!

Additional Information


IMPRO is a small non-profit organization that has been offering micro credit to the working poor in the Bolivian cities of La Paz and El Alto since 1995. IMPRO’s goal is to fight poverty by offering loans to small business owners who cannot access credit through the regular banking system due to a lack of guarantees or collateral.

To ensure that everyone has access to credit, IMPRO maintains a low interest rate by minimizing operational costs. IMPRO’s partnership with Kiva, which began in 2007, has allowed IMPRO to expand its services while maintaining these low interest rates.
