Zenon is married; his wife lives in the country; he has a son who helps him; they live at a relative's house in the city of El Alto.

He only has a primary education. He is a professional tinsmith (he recycles scrap metal like barrels) and he builds metal objects to be used in the home.

He needs this loan to buy more metal containers that allow him to make objects for personal use, such as bathtubs, in greater quantities

Zenon's dream is for his products to be sold at the department level.

This is his first time applying for a Kiva loan.

Additional Information


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.
