Rosa is separated. She has three children. Her oldest daughter is studying Gastronomy. Her minor children are still in school. They live in their own house in the Mariscal Santa Cruz neighborhood in the city of El Alto. She only went to primary school due to her parents’ lack of money. She currently sells women’s underwear. She has her own sales stand where she sells Tuesdays through Sundays.

She needs the loan to get construction material (cement, sand, bricks, and stucco, etc). This way she will be able to build a room in order to make her children more comfortable. They lived in a relative’s house as caregivers.

Rosa’s dream is to have a house with areas for each of her children.

This is the third time she has requested a loan from 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.

About Housing Loans

Many poor families cannot afford housing that meets their needs. When you make a housing loan on Kiva, you give people access to flexible capital to obtain or improve their homes. Better housing means better health, sanitation, and even educational outcomes for children. A house can also be much more for entrepreneurs who run businesses out of their homes. In this way, housing and small business loans on Kiva share a common purpose: to alleviate poverty and enable families to enjoy more stable lives.
