Remigio sells milk from his cows to a commercial dairy called Pil Andina. He also works as a chauffeur to supplement his income and support his family. He lives in Achacachi -Tipampa, about two hours from La Paz. He would use his loan to buy another dairy cow to increase his yield of cow's milk. This is his first loan from IMPRO, which rates him as a very good loan risk.

Translated from Spanish by Antonio Padial, Kiva Volunteer

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.
