Deysi is single and has two children who are studying. They live in anticrético housing [a term that refers to when a tenant pays a fixed sum upon renting a house instead of montly rent] located in the Challapampa zone of the city of La Paz.
She currently works as a natural sciences teacher at the board of education for more than eight hours a day because it helps to pay for food costs and basic services for her family. She is requesting a loan to help her daughter pay for her thesis in her major of geology because her daughter is not yet working.
Deysi's dream is that her children will be professionals and make good incomes for a better quality of life.
This is the first loan she has requested from IMPRO and Kiva.

El sueño de Deysi, es que sus hijos sean profesionales y obtengan buenos ingresos para mejorar su calidad de vida.
Es la primera vez que solicita el crédito junto a IMPRO y 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.
