View original language description ↓
Benjamin is single and he works providing sound and music to social events such as weddings, birthdays, baptisms, parties. He works independently, and this is his only source of income to support himself and help his mother. He lives in the Miraflores neighborhood in La Paz, Bolivia.

This is the sixth time that he enjoys the benefits of a loan. Benjamin is requesting this loan to purchase a double mixer (to mix music tracks) and to have a competitive advantage in the entertainment market.
His hard word and desire for self-improvement make him worthy of this loan.

Translated from Spanish by Maria B., Kiva volunteer

Benjamín es soltero y ofrece servicios de amplificación para acontecimientos sociales como cumpleaños, matrimonios, bautizos, fiestas, etc. Dicha actividad es desarrollada de manera independiente y es la única fuente de ingresos, los cuales ayudan económicamente a su madre. Su domicilio se encuentra en la zona de Miraflores de la ciudad de La Paz

Esta es la sexta ocasión en que se beneficia con un crédito. El monto esta vez será invertido en la compra de un compactador doble (equipo que se utiliza para enganchar y mezclar pistas musicales), con lo cuál pretende ofrecer una ventaja competitiva en el mercado del entretenimiento. Su trabajo y sus ganas de superación le permiten acceder al préstamo.

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.
