Rolando works as a salaried driver in the Trufi 88 (Sindicato Eduardo Avaroa). His wife is an operator in a clothing factory; with these occupations they are able to cover the family expenses. The family pays to rent a house located in the zone Villa Ingavi in the city of El Alto.
The loan would be used for Rolando to acquire a different working tool (a vehicle to be used in service as a taxi). This would be entirely his own property, which would permit him to increase his income.
This is his second loan with IMPRO; his good payment history permitted him to continue with another loan.

El crédito será usado para que Rolando adquiera otra herramienta de trabajo (vehículo a medio uso que servirá como taxi), misma que será de su entera propiedad, lo que le permitrá incrementar sus ingresos económicos.
Es el segundo crédito con IMPRO, su buen comportamiento de pago le permite acceder a otro prestamo.
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.
