Sr. Diego has no children. He lives with his mother in a rental property that consists of a room with fine finishes and a wooden plank floor. The house is located in the District of Escobar Uria in the city of La Paz.

Diego studied through high school. He currently works independently by repairing mobile phones, but he also sells them from his vending stall. This enables him to help his mother with expenses such as food, clothing, and basic services.

Additional Information


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.
