Jhimmy is not married, but he lives with his partner and has a 2 year-old son who is not yet in school. He lives in his parents' house, occupying 5 rooms with brick walls that are plastered with stucco and wooden floors. The home is located in the Tembladerani neighborhood of the city of La Paz.
Jhimmy currently works in public transportation. This is his family's only source of income, because his wife doesn't work and devotes herself only to the home. This is the only economic activity he has, and so is his only source of income.
Jhimmy needs a loan to buy a motor for his vehicle, so that he can continue to work and carry out his job.
Jhimmy's dream is to be able to acquire another vehicle, so that he could have more income and improve his quality of life.
This is the second time that he has requested a loan from IMPRO and Kiva.
Jhimmy no es casado pero convive con su pareja y tiene un hijo de dos años que aun no esta en la escuela, vive en casa de sus padres y ocupa cinco habitaciones con paredes de ladrillo, revocado de estuco y piso de tablones. La casa se encuentra ubicada en la zona Tembladerani de la ciudad de La Paz.
Actualmente trabaja como transportista público, el es el único que provee a su familia ya que la esposa no trabaja y solamente se dedica a su hogar. Es la unica actividad que tiene y por lo tanto el único ingreso.
El crédito lo requiere para la compra de un motor para su movilidad para poder continuar con su actividad y así poder cumplir con su trabajo.
El sueño de Jhimmy es poder adquirir otra movilidad y poder tener un ingreso mas para mejorar su calidad de vida.
Es la segunda vez que solicita 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.
