Wilmer
Wilmer is single and has no children. He lives in his grandparents' house in a small room with adobe walls and a dirt floor. The house is located in the the Pampahasi area of the city of La Paz.

Currently he works more than 10 hours as a driver, and sometimes until late at night because it's the only thing to cover his expenses for food and basic services.

He needs the loan for maintenance expenses for his vehicle because it's his only source of income to support himself.

Wilmer's dream is to improve his income and be able to work on his own to improve his quality of life.

This is his first time requesting a loan from IMPRO and also with Kiva.

About IMPRO

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.
