Javier G. cares for teeth and molars (dentist) in his home (in other words he has a space set up in his home). He doesn’t have an office due to a lack of financial resources. He lives with his wife in the miraflores area in La Paz. His wife helps him with her small salary from a couple of relatives who offered her some extra work.

Javier needs this loan to buy supplies for his profession and some cleaning equipment that he needs. In this way he will be able to provide better service to his small number of customers.

Javier’s dream is to be able to provide a professional education to his daughters and to have his own dental office in a good location so he can provide good service.

El señor Javier se dedica actualmente a la cura de dientes y muelas (dentista) en su propio domicilio (mejor dicho en un espacio reducido de su sala) no teniendo el espacio y la infraestructura requerida para esta profesion por falta de recursos economicos, vive en compañia de su esposa e hijos en la zona de miraflores de la ciudad de La Paz. Su esposa persivira una ayuda salarial de parte de sus parientes que le ofrecieron un pequeño trabajo extra.
Javier necesita el credito para hacer compra de materia prima para su profesion y un pequeño equipo de limpieza que son necesarios para su actividad, y de esta manera poder ofrecer un mejor servicio a su pequeña clientela.

El sueño de Javier es poder dar a sus hijas una educacion profesional y tener su propio consultorio dental bien ubicado para prestar un buen servicio.

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.
