Carlos Florencio
Carlos U. pays rent on his home located on Juan Granier Street in the zone of La Paz known as 14 de Septiembre (September 14). He has a tailoring workshop in his rented home. He supports his wife and children with the workshop; it is his only source of income. His loan application is for capital with which to buy working materials. Currently he does only alterations, but he plans to begin making complete suits in order to earn more money with his sales. In Bolivia, making custom suits to order pays well, thanks to the good price the tailor can charge for the final product.

Carlos is one of IMPRO's oldest clients. His credit history is very good; IMPRO recommends helping this microentrepreneur.

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.
