Nahybe is single, and she does not have children. She lives in only one small room of her grandmother’s house. The house is located in the Villa Nueva Potosí area in the city of La Paz.
She has a high school education. She gets income from selling fast food. She works for over eight hours a day. She uses her income to pay the family’s food expenses, basic services, and medical expenses. She does not have any other income.
That is why she is requesting the loan to buy noodles and peanuts, etc. in order to be able to increase her income.
Nahybe’s dream is to attend college and later become independent. She wants to do this in order to improve her quality of life.
It is the second time she has requested a loan from IMPRO and the first time she has requested a loan from 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.
