Victor is a widower and has an adult son. He lives in a home of his own, located in the Tembladerani area of La Paz.

He will use the money from this loan to maintain his minibus because it’s his only source of income. Despite him being elderly, he doesn’t get any help from his son.

Victor’s dream is to buy another minibus so he can rent it out because he finds the daily conditions very exhausting. He wants to work part time and improve his income and quality of life.

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.
