Celia currently works as a merchant, selling electrical goods and clothing near one of the transportation unions where there are a large number of drivers. She is responsible for expenses, such as transportation and food. The loan she is requesting will be used to buy sweaters and sportswear that she can continue selling. These items are the most requested by her customers.
Celia’s dream includes having a household appliance store, generating more income, and hiring an employee to help with making sales. This is the first time she has requested a loan from IMPRO and Kiva.
Actualmente Celia trabaja como comerciante de productos eléctricos y ropa vendiendo en uno de los sindicatos de choferes a una gran mayoría de los chóferes. Celia se encarga de sus gastos de transporte y alimentación. El crédito lo necesita para comprar chompas y deportivos para seguir vendiendo, pues sus clientes le han pedido más de estos artículos.
El sueño de Celia es el de contar con una tienda de electrodomésticos y poder mejorar sus ingresos y poder contar con una persona que le ayude en las ventas.
Es la primera vez que solicita crédito junto a IMPRO Y KIVA.
About IMPROIMPRO 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.
