Carla is a single mother, and she lives with her parents in the San Pedro area of the city of La Paz. She works as a classroom helper at a small elementary school. She does not get enough income to pay for her education. That is why she needs a loan to pay her school fees and to be able to continue her education program.
Carla’s dream is to become a professional and to be able to get a better job with better pay. She wants to do this in order to be able to become independent.
Carla es madre soltera y vive con sus padres en la zona de San Pedro de la ciudad de La Paz. Trabaja como auxiliar de aula de nivel primaria en un colegio pequeño donde sus ingresos son insuficientes para poder pagar sus estudios. Es por eso que requiere el crédito, para pagar las pensiones y poder continuar con su carrera de pedagogía.
El sueño de Carla es salir profesional y poder acceder a un mejor empleo con mejor renumeración para poder independizarse.
Es la primera vez que trabaja con 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.
