Blanca lives with her husband and son in her own home, located in the Achachicala zone of La Paz. She works as a teacher in La Paz and is requesting this loan in order to pay for her son’s education, as she must pay in advance in order to keep the cost as low as possible. She has been working with Impro since 2002 and has had a good repayment record.
La señora Blanca vive en casa del esposo con su hijo en la zona de Achachicala de la ciudad de La Paz; trabaja en un colegio de la ciudad de la Paz como profesora.
El crédito que solicita es para pagar los estudios de su hijo ya que en el colegio donde estudia tiene que pagar por adelantado para que el costo de pensiones le sea más económico.
Es cliente de Impro desde el año 2002 y paga muy bien por lo tanto puede acceder a un nuevo 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.
