Saturina walks around selling her wares (selling rice and milk). She works in the streets, pushing her small, two-wheeled cart with her merchandise. Her husband is a worker at a bread store. This work allows Saturnina to pay for the upkeep of her five children, who depend on her. Saturnina lives in the home of her parents, located in the zone Brazil in the city of El Alto.
This loan would be invested in the purchase of a new cart, because the one she has now is in very bad shape.
This is her first loan with IMPRO. The results of her evaluation allow her to apply for this loan which is requested for Saturnina.

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.
