Felicidad
View original language description ↓
Felicidad is living in her own house at Buenos Aires Avenue, in the area of Lomas de La Paz. Her shop is in her home, and she makes and sells food with the help of her sons and daughter in laws. The loan she is requesting will be used to purchase products such as rice, noodles, quinoa, oats, etc., since food staple prices are rising daily due to the inflation phenomenon that the country is experiencing. She wishes not to raise the cost of lunch she sells because she's afraid she'd lose her customers.



Felicidad was first approved as a Kiva client in July of 2006, and has already paid off her first loan. She has good credit history and is described as a good customer, so she is approved for this new loan.

Translated from Spanish by Mayra Gould, Kiva volunteer.














Felicidad vive en casa propia en la Av. Buenos Aires de la zona de las Lomas de la ciudad de La Paz; en su misma casa tiene una tienda, lugar donde realiza la venta de comida con la ayuda de sus hijos y yernas. El crédito que solicita es para comprar insumos como ser arroz, fideo, quinua, avena, etc., ya que los productos de primera necesidad están subiendo diariamente de precio debido al fenómeno inflacionario que el País está sufriendo y ella no quiere subir el costo del almuerzo que vende, pues perdería clientela.

Felicidad ya fue aceptada como cliente de Kiva y recibió un préstamo el año pasado, el cual está cancelado en su totalidad.

Su antecedente histórico la califica como buena cliente y puede acceder a un nuevo crédito. Ella es nuestro cliente desde julio de 2006.

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.
