Daniel is single. He does not have any children and he lives with his parents in their home. His house can be found in the Villa Estrellas zone of Belén in the city of El Alto. He attended school through middle school and he works decorating crafts that he distributes in the interior of the country. His crafts are colorful sweaters and backpacks made of embroidered cloth called aguayo (aguayo is a fabric made with threads of many different colors).
He needs the loan to increase his capital primarily so that he can acquire leather wallets that he will decorate with different colors of aguayo. Daniel's dream is to have a store where he can sell many different types of crafts.
This is the fourth time he has sought a loan through IMPRO and his third time through Kiva.

El estudió hasta el nivel secundario y se dedica al decorado de artesanías, las que distribuye al interior del país, son chompas de colores y morrales hechos de aguayo (aguayo es una tela hecha con hilos de diferentes colores).

El sueño de Daniel es tener una tienda donde venda todo tipo de artesanías.
Es la cuarta vez que solicita crédito junto a IMPRO y la tercera vez con 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.
