Sirley
Sirley is married and has two children, one of whom is school aged. They live in her mother-in-law's house in three rooms with brick walls and dirt floors. The house is located in the Alto San Antonio area of the city of La Paz.

She currently works selling fruits on the sidewalk of a commercial street, dealing with weather changes in company of her baby, since she doesn't have anyone to leave him with. With the little she earns, she is able to cover the costs of food, education, and basic utilities for her family.

She is requesting this loan to increase her merchandise since this will improve her income and her quality of life. Sirley's dream is to have her own stall so that she does not have to suffer on the street, and later to obtain a pre-paid rental home to provide more comfort and security to her family.

This is the second time she has requested a loan with IMPRO and the first time with Kiva.

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.
