Mrs. Viviana lives in her own house in the area of Pasankeri ladera oeste of the City La Paz with her husband and her three sons; Mrs. Viviana works as a store clerk for a clothing store. With the loans that she previously received she fixed four of the rooms in her house and installed a fence in the front of her house. This new credit will be used to fix the interior walls and structure of her house. This is the third time that she is asking for a loan and the credit analysis performed shows that she is a favorable candidate and that she should be capable of repaying this 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.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
