Olga lives on Luís Espinal Avenue, Street 4 in the Puerto Mejillones area of the city of El Alto. She lives with her husband who has an auto repair shop and her two children, ages 24 and 13. Olga sells vegetables in a street stall located on the city’s main avenue. The loan is to buy more merchandise (lettuce, beans, radishes, etc.) and thereby increase her sales and her income.

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.
