Ruben works in transportation, providing service between La Paz and El Alto. This is his primary source of income, with which he supports his three small children and wife. They live in his parents’ home, located in the Pasankeri zone of the city of El Alto, along with his brother’s family.
The loan would be destined for construction materials to build a wall to separate the two families that reside in the same house.

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.
