The front of his house suffered a collapse because of the deterioration of the adobe walls (the old, obsolete and dangerous material soaks through easily). That is why he needs credit to rebuild the front wall—this time with concrete and brick. This is the fifth time he has come to us for credit and, as always, our evaluation indicates that he is eligible for a new loan.

About IMPROIMPRO 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.
