Maria is a farmer who raises dairy cows and sells the milk to the industrial milk plant called PIL Andina. She lives with her parents and brothers in the community of Ancocagua, about 3 1/2 hours outside of La Paz. The loan will be used to buy a good dairy cow so she sell more milk and meet the demands of PIL Andina. This is the first loan with Impro, and her evaluation shows that she is qualified to receive the money.

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.
