Wilfredo is married and lives in his parents' home in the San Martin area in the city of La Paz.
He currently works as a chofer, but he also has a small brick factory in the Alpacoma area. He is requesting this loan to buy a modeling machine, which will help him make bricks quickly and improve his income so he can provide his family with the comfort they need. Right now, they only have one room.
Wilfredo's dream is to have his own home.
This is his third loan through IMPRO and his first through Kiva.

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.
