The house is built of adobe and the floor is packed earth. it lacks some walls but has a roof. The house is located in Coripata zone, in the Trinidad Pampa sector of Las Yungas in La Paz.

At present, he cultivates vegetables in a rudimentary way and his wife also works, cultivating vegetables and herbs, and clearing small farms. They sell their products in the zone where they live and in the city of La Paz. The place where they work is replete with dirt and dust. They work every day of the week. Both collaborate in paying for the services, food, clothing, and education of their sons.

He needs the loan to purchase a motorcycle to help transport his family, for his sons to go to school and for him to go to his fields where he works amidst the dirt and dust.

Miguelon's dream is to be able to count on enough working capital to facilitate improved production and, thus, improving his quality of life.

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.
