Elva is married, but she does not have children. She lives in her own house, which is located in the Rio Seco area of the city of El Alto. She has an elementary school education. She makes and sells raffle tickets 'Suerte sin Blanca' [raffle in which everyone wins a prize] at schools, stores, and others.

She needs the loan to buy a variety of toys in order to be able to stock her raffles with different models, as much for boys as girls. She will also do this to have toys available in order to be able to meet with the requirements.

Elva’s dream is that her raffles be distributed at a national level.

It is the third time that she has requested a loan with IMPRO and the first time with Kiva.

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.
