Mr. Nicasio G. Amaro lives in a rented home in San Juan Cotahuma on the western side of La Paz with his wife and three children. Nacasio is employed by a laundry business in this city and his wife is a cook selling meals in a food stand. With previous loans Nicasio built a home on land he owns. The current loan will be used to finish the construction so his family will be able to move in to their new home.

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.
