Isabel Ramírez Cayo lives in the Pasankeri zone on the western side of the city of La Paz. She lives in her own home with her husband Francisco Quispe and their son.

Isabel is a cook, and works as a street hawker selling meals in her neighbourhood. Her husband works as a public transport driver.

With previous loans they completed the basic construction of two rooms, however they are not yet inhabitable. This loan is to completely finish the construction of the rooms: the walls and ceiling need to be covered in stucco and then painted, the electrical wiring needs to be completed etc.

This is the eighth time she has sought a loan, and the socioeconomic analysis classified her favourably as eligible for a new loan.

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.
