Jaime lives with her husband in her own home in the Alto San Pedro zone of La Paz.. She is dedicated to making footwear for children, and her shop is located in her home. She works with one person who assembles the shoes and her husband who cuts and sows. The loan she's requesting is for purchasing materials so she can produce larger quantities, hire another person, and increase her income.

Jaime received a loan in 2006, which she repaid in full incrementally. Her credit history classifies her as an excellent client and worthy of receiving another 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.
