Hernan
Hernán is married and has two children who are of school age. They live at the house of his in-laws where they occupy two rooms that consist of brick walls and dirt floors. The house is located in the District of Villa Fátima in the city of La Paz.


Hernán currently generates income by making and repairing shoes for men, women, and children. He works more than 10 hours a day in order to cover expenses such as food, education, and basic services for his family. The loan he is requesting will be used to buy a computer to help facilitate his children’s studies.


Hernán’s dream is to have a house of his own so that he can provide more comfort and security for his family. This is the third time he has requested a loan from IMPRO and the first time with Kiva.

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.
