Daniela is single, and she lives in her parents’ house in the Alto Sopocachi area of the city of La Paz. She does not have children, but she helps with the household expenses because she has several minor siblings.
She needs the loan she requested to pay for her university studies and to be able to finish her degree.
She works as a teller at a financial institution where having a degree is an important requirement for a better position.
Daniela’s dream is to become independent and to be able to improve her quality of life.
This is the first time she has requested a loan from IMPRO and Kiva.

Trabaja como cajera en una institución financiera donde es requisito importante tener una licenciatura para poder postular a un mejor cargo.
El sueño de Daniela es independizarse y poder mejorar su calidad de vida.
Es primera vez que solicita crédito en Impro y 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.
