View original language description ↓
Silvio works as a cashier in a financial institution, and he studies Auditing at the Universidad Salesiana de Bolivia.
He lives in the Llojeta El Rosal neighborhood in La Paz, Bolivia.
He is 30 years old, single and supports himself; at 30, he no longer counts on his parents' help.
This is the fourth time that he asks for a loan at Impro. The loan he requests this time will be used to purchase a computer, which he needs to complete the practical homework assigned in the last two years of his studies.

Sivio is very responsible; he had a good record on the previous loans, and he did not have any problems making the payments on time.
His desire to obtain a university degree is one more reason to help him.

Silvio trabaja como cajero en una entidad financiera y es estudiante de auditoria en la Universidad Salesiana de Bolivia.
Vive en la zona de Llojeta el rosal de la Ciudad de La Paz
Es soltero y se mantiene por si mismo ya que no cuenta con la ayuda de sus padres porque tiene 30 años.
Es la cuarta vez que solicita un crédito en Impro. El crédito que ahora solicita será destinado para la compra de una computadora ya que esta en los últimos dos años de la Universidad y es un bien necesario para que pueda realizar sus trabajos prácticos.
Es una persona muy responsable ya que en todo el tiempo que trabaja, su comportamiento en los créditos otorgados fue bueno y no tuvo problemas para efectuar sus pagos respectivos.
Sus ansias de terminar su carrera universitaria es una razón más para que podamos ayudarlo.

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.
