Lizet lives with her 2 children in the Achachicala neighborhood of the city of La Paz. She works as an employee of a dressmaking business. The loan she requests is to pay for the operation of her youngest child, who was born with a cleft lip. Due to the frequent fainting spells that the young child experiences, the need for this operation is urgent.
This is the first time that she has requested a loan from IMPRO, but because of her character, she is able to access the loan.
La señora Lizet vive con sus dos hijos en la zona de Achachicala de la ciudad de La Paz; trabaja como empleada en una empresa de costura. El crédito que solicita es para pagar la operación de su hijo menor el cual nació con labio leporino; debido a los constantes desmayos que tiene el pequeño es que necesita una operación urgente.
Este es la primera vez que solicita un crédito de Impro, pero por el carácter social puede acceder a un crédito.
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.
