Carmen Rosa
View original language description ↓
Carmen Rosa works as a financial assistant in a multidisciplinary consulting office. Her home is located in the Pampahasi Alto zone on the east side of La Paz. She is single, but is in charge of her younger sisters after their parents passed away. This is the first time she has requested a loan that will be used to complete an upper-level course. Her goal is to earn her degree in public accounting so she can improve her salary possibilities in her line of work. She has five years seniority at her work, which is why she has the ability to cover her requirements.

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.
