Valdivia P. lives with her husband and children in their home on First Street in Llojeta el Vergel. She earns money from selling hand-made blankets and on the weekends she works selling potatos. Her husband works as a mason's assistant in different villages. The loan she is requesting is for construction work on her home. These improvements will allow her family to live comfortably.

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.
