Aydee is single and has no children. She lives in a relative's house, occupying three rooms. The house is located in the Tembladerani neighborhood of the city of La Paz.

Aydee currently earns an income by working more than 10 hours a day in her beauty salon, including weekends, because this is the only source of income she has to cover her family's expenses for food, education and basic services.

She needs a loan to buy more beauty products for her salon (dyes, shampoo, conditioners), and to sell to her customers. This way she can increase her income, which is the only source of income she has to support her family.

Aydee's dream is to increase her income so that she could live independently and have greater comfort, improving her quality of life.

This is the first time that she is requesting a loan from IMPRO and Kiva.

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.
