Mr. Julián M. M. lives in his own home in the Fabril area of El Alto city with his wife, Mrs. Pabla Surco, and their daughter. Julián works as a public transportation driver and his wife is employed as a domestic employee in the city of La Paz. The loan he seeks will be used to demolish an old home made of adobe which because of its age is in danger of collapsing, and then construct a new home of brick in the same location. This is the sixth loan and the socioeconomic analysis qualifies him favorably to access this line of credit. Julián has been a client of Impro since 2000.

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.
