Rudy works as a salaried driver in one of the city of La Paz’s transportation syndicates. He needs the loan to service the vehicle because his only source of income to support his family is what he earns from his profession as a driver.
Rudy is single and has two children; he’s also caring for two younger siblings who are orphans. They live in a rented house in the city of La Paz’s Pasankeri zone. This is the first time he’s worked with IMPRO and KIVA.

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.
