Miguel lives in his own house. He’s married but separated from his wife. He has three children who are all independent now. His house is located in the city of La Paz’s Tembladerani zone.
Miguel is a pensioned retiree and needs the loan to pay for ophthalmology consult in a private clinic because the health centers in the social security system are unreliable and it takes a long time to get an appointment. He will also have a general health check-up while he’s at it.
Miguel’s dream was to see his children become professionals and he’s already attained it. This is his fifth time with IMPRO and first with KIVA.

Miguel es jubilado rentista, y requiere el crédito para pagar una consulta médica en oftalmología en una clínica privada debido a que los centros de salud de la caja son muy precarios y toma tiempo conseguir una cita. Al mismo tiempo se hará un chequeo general de salud.
El sueño del Sr Miguel era ver profesionales a sus hijos lo cual ya logró.
Es la quinta vez con IMPRO y la primera vez que es parte de 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.
