Micaela
Micaela’s married and has three children who are school age. They live in a house of their own occupying a single room with brick walls and dirt floor located in the city of El Alto’s Bautista Saavedra zone.

She only went to elementary school and currently earns income working more than 12 hours making blankets to then sell in a store she has at home. She also sells dehydrated potato because she has to cover food, schooling and basic utility costs for her family.

The loan she needs is to increase capital. She wants to buy materials needed to make blankets because what she earns is insufficient and she wants to increase her income.

Micaela’s dream is to build more rooms to provide more comfort for her family and to improve their quality of life.

This is her fourth loan request to IMPRO and first 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.
