Freddy is single, has no children, and lives in his parents' house, located in the Villa 25 de Julio Zone of the City of El Alto.
Freddy studied up to the secondary level. At present, he works as a driver for the Urbe Altena [taxi company] in the City of El Alto, but as an independent. This is how he covers his personal expenses.
The loan he is requesting is for general maintenance on his vehicle, which is his principal work tool.
Freddy's dream is to have another vehicle and, in the future, to open a radio taxi enterprise.
This is the 1st time he has solicited a loan jointly from IMPRO and 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.
