Janeth lives with her husband and children in her in-laws' house in the Cotahuma neighborhood of La Paz. She and her husband are tailors. They work with the "comerciantes mañaneros" (morning merchants, so-called because they open for business very early in the morning, from 6-9).

She will use the funds to buy supplies (fabric, buttons, zippers and thread) to manufacture school uniforms.

She is an Impro client and repays well so she qualifies for a new 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.
