Eloy Yuira M. owns his home in the Lomas district, a suburban area of La Paz. He is married and has three children. Eloy works as a driver in a city construction company and his wife does embroidery work for a traditional costume shop. They requested a loan for building a bedroom on the second floor of their home. This is the first time they are requesting a loan. The socio-economic analysis Impro has conducted qualifies them for a 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.
