Sonia
Sonia is a single mother; she has two children. Her husband abandoned her five years ago. She lives in her cousin’s house sharing some of the space. She has a room she uses as a bedroom, a living room and a kitchen. Her cousin’s house is adobe and the floor is wood and cement. The house is located in the city of La Paz’s Las Lomas neighborhood.

Sonia currently works as an employee in a print shop providing customer service setting up all types of orders. She earns a monthly salary that she uses to cover her transportation and food needs. She needs the loan to buy a computer to do the print work which will increase her income.

Sonia’s dream is to be able to see her children grow up and be able to fend for themselves; she’d also like to have a small, neighborhood store to be able to be near her children. This is her first loan request to IMPRO and 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.
