Jannet works in one of the state offices. She is single and has a school aged son. Jannet lives in her own home in the “Mayo de 8” [May 8th] region of La Paz. She needs a loan to purchase a laptop computer, which will help her very much in her job because she often needs to create reports and she doesn’t have enough time at work. This is the first time she is requesting a loan from Impro and Kiva.
Jannet trabaja en una de las dependencias del Estado. Es soltera y tiene un hijo que está en edad escolar.
Jannet vive en casa propia en la zona 8 de mayo de la ciudad de La Paz.
Ella necesita un crédito para la compra de una computadora portátil que le servirá mucho en su trabajo, pues necesita muchas veces elaborar informes y el tiempo no le alcanza en su trabajo.
Esta es la primera vez que solicita un crédito de IMPRO y de 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.
