Yesit
Yesit is single but has two children. He lives in a rented, three-bedroom house with adobe walls and dirt floor located in the city of El Alto’s Villa Alemania zone. Yesit studied up to secondary school and is currently a partner in a cooperative taxi line working as a salaried driver providing public transportation service for more than 8 hours daily. This is how he pays for food, medical expenses, rent and other basic services.

He needs the loan to provide general service for his car (oil change, break check, tire balancing) to provide good customer service and improve his income since this is his only source of income. Yesit’s dream is to own a house to improve his quality of life and provide more comfort for his family. This is the fourth time he’s worked with 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.
