Jonathan is married and has a small child, they live in the house they own, which is located in the Achumani zone in the city of La Paz. Currently, he works as a lawyer for more than ten hours a day, since he needs to pay for the food and the basic needs of his family.
He is applying for this loan in order to pay for higher education studies, since he wishes to take a refresher course in his field, and the little money he earns is not enough to cover these expenses.
Jonathan's dream is to improve his income and his quality of life. This is his third loan with Impro and his first one with 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.
