Beltran
View original language description ↓
Mr. Beltran lives in his own house in the San Juan Villa in the city of La Paz with his wife and two children. Mr. Beltran is a police officer and his wife is a homemaker.


With former loans, Mr. Beltran was able to build his two story home. His family lives in the lower level of the house.


The loan requested will be used to complete the upper level of his house, he wants to build two bedrooms in the upper level. This is the tenth time he requests a loan. The socioeconomic review done generously qualifies him for a loan.


In Bolivia, houses are usually done in sections because people are poor and they don't have the capital to build it all at one time.


Translated from Spanish by Maria Peterson, Kiva Volunteer.



El señor Beltrán C. vive en casa propia en la zona de Villa San Juan de la Ciudad de La Paz con su esposa y sus dos hijos. El señor Beltrán presta sus servicios como oficial de policía y su esposa es ama de casa.
Con anteriores créditos el señor Beltrán realizó la construcción de su vivienda en dos plantas, de las cuales el nivel inferior esta concluido y la ocupa la familia.
El crédito solicitado será destinado a la construcción en obra fina y acabado de dos habitaciones en planta alta.
Esta es la décima ocasión que solicita un préstamo y el análisis socioeconómico realizado los califica favorablemente y puede acceder a un crédito.
En Bolivia, la construcción de una casa cuyo dueño es gente pobre, se hace casi siempre por partes, pues los dueños no tienen el capital suficiente para construir completamente la casa y de una sola vez.

About IMPRO

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.
