Elizabeth
Elizabeth is married and has two school-age children. They live in their own house in three rooms. The house is located in the Sopocachi area of the city of La Paz.

Currently she works more than eight hours a day as a street vendor selling clothing and women's accessories because her husband went abroad to work and doesn't send her money. This is why she's the only one who covers her family's expenses for education, food, and basic services.

She needs the loan to increase her merchandise (to buy more clothing and women's accessories) because she wants to improve her income and her family's quality of life.

This is the third time she has requested a loan from IMPRO and the second time from 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.
