Norberta has a cart from which she receives rent for transportation services and this is the only income that she has in order to be able to resolve her expenses for nourishment. She is married and because of her age she is not able to do heavy labor. And so she needs a loan in order to buy sheep and in that way begin her work raising sheep. She lives in her own house in the Bajo Llojeta neighborhood of the city of La Paz. This is the first time she has sought a loan from IMPRO. The earnings from her improved situation will give her the means of being able to obtain this loan.

Vive en la Zona de bajo Llojeta de la Ciudad de La Paz en casa propia.
Es la primera vez que solicita un crédito en Impro, las ganas de superarse le dan la oportunidad de poder acceder a este crédito.
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.
