Juan Carlos
View original language description ↓
Juan Carlos lives in his own home with his children and his wife. His home is located in 18th Street in the Bajo Llojeta neighborhood of the city of La Paz. Both he and his wife dedicate themselves to selling charcoal and their business is going well. He is requesting a loan to increase his working capital in order to reach more clients especially in supermarkets. His prior history is good and he qualifies for a new loan. Juan Carlos obtained a prior loan through Kiva which is paid in full.

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.
